Buy Cordarone brand or generic Amiodarone prescription drug from Canada
Why is Cordarone prescribed?
Amiodarone (Cordarone) is prescribed to patients with life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats in the lower heart chambers) to aid in beating normally. Due to its risk for toxicity, it is prescribed only when alternative medications have not worked or are not tolerated by the patient.
What does it do?
Ventricular arrhythmias cause the heart to beat irregularly and this affects the circulation of blood in the body. In serious cases, ventricular arrhythmias may cause loss of consciousness and even cardiac arrest if not treated appropriately with antiarrhythmics.
Amiodarone is classified as a class III anti-arrhythmic that works by regulating your heartbeat and relaxing the heart muscles.
How should I take it?
Cordarone is available as a 200mg tablet intended for oral administration. The first few doses will be taken in a hospital for careful monitoring. For the succeeding doses, always take it according to your doctor’s instructions and do not alter your dose without consulting your doctor.
Cordarone should be taken in the same manner every time, with or without meals. Improvement in your heart rhythm may take up to 3 weeks. Continue taking it as instructed even if you do not feel any symptoms. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist for any concerns you may have.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Cordarone?
Inform your doctor if you are allergic to Amiodarone, Iodine, or any component of the medication as this product may contain inactive ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction.
Inform your doctor of your past and present medical history especially if you have or have had lung problems, liver problems, thyroid problems, slow heart rate or blood pressure problems, diarrhea for a long time period, low electrolyte levels, or an implanted pacemaker or defibrillator.

Is it safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
The use of Amiodarone during pregnancy may cause harm to the fetus and cause developmental abnormalities.
Amiodarone should not be taken by mothers who are breastfeeding. Amiodarone may be passed into breast milk and may harm your baby. Even if you have stopped taking Amiodarone for several months, the medication may still be found in your body.
