Description
Curator's Comment:: description was created based on several sources, including: https://www.drugs.com/ppa/dronedarone.html | https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=7fa41601-7fb5-4155-8e50-2ae903f0d2d6 | http://www.rxlist.com/multaq-drug.htm

Dronedarone is an antiarrhythmic that is FDA approved for the treatment of atrial fibrillation in patients in sinus rhythm with a history of paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). Dronedarone is multichannel blocker. Common adverse reactions include abdominal pain, diarrhea, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, asthenia and raised serum creatinine. Dronedarone has potentially important pharmacodynamics interactions: Digoxin: Consider discontinuation or halve dose of digoxin before treatment and monitor; Calcium channel blockers (CCB): Initiate CCB with low dose and increase after ECG verification of tolerability; Beta-blockers: May provoke excessive bradycardia, Initiate with low dose and increase after ECG verification of tolerability.
