Drug Interactions With Amiodarone Premixed Injection

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Amiodarone Premixed Injection

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when amiodarone premixed injection is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Azithromycin
Combining amiodarone premixed injection with azithromycin may increase the risk for potentially serious heart rhythm problems. If you must use these medicines together, your healthcare provider will need to closely monitor you.
 
Beta Blockers
Amiodarone premixed injection should be used cautiously in people taking a beta blocker medicine, due to the risk of a dangerously low heart rate. Your healthcare provider will need to closely monitor you if you use these medicines together. However, this interaction is not likely to occur with beta blocker eye drops.
 
Bile Acid Sequestrants
Bile acid sequestrants may bind to amiodarone in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and decrease the amount of the medicine absorbed into the body. This could make amiodarone less effective. In general, these medicines should not be used together unless absolutely necessary.
 
Certain Statin Medications
Amiodarone premixed injection can increase the blood levels of certain statin medications. If you take a statin with amiodarone premixed injection, your healthcare provider needs to give you a lower statin dose or choose one that does not react with amiodarone premixed injection.
 
Cimetidine
Cimetidine has been reported to increase amiodarone blood levels. It is probably best to avoid using these medications together. If you need a medication for heartburn or sour stomach while using amiodarone premixed injection, your healthcare provider can help you choose one that is not likely to interfere with amiodarone premixed injection.
