the package insert of the medicine Color Mio. Therapeutic class of Antiarritmicos. Active principles Hydrochloride Amiodarone.
Arrhythmias, ventricular (prophylaxis and treatment): ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation hemodynamically unstable. It is effective in ventricular arrhythmias in patients with coronary artery disease who have had ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, in ventricular tachycardia idiopathic and recurrent
in ventricular arrhythmias are present in chagasic cardiopathy. In patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, amiodarone decreases the incidence of ventricular tachycardia. In the treatment antiarrhythmic prophylactic treatment of patients with ventricular arrhythmias complex, persistent and asymptomatic after myocardial infarction,
reducing mortality and arrhythmic events. In patients with arrhythmia ventricular malignant (with the exception of the sub-group of patients with a history of ventricular fibrillation, and ejection fraction less than 30%), avoiding sudden cardiac death. In patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
concurrently with the arrhythmia ventricular malignant, improving the survival rate. In angina linked to arrhythmias and heart failure not controlled, in cases of contraindications or ineffectiveness of other treatments.
Arrhythmias, supraventricular (prophylaxis and treatment): arrhythmias supraventricular refractory to conventional treatment, especially when associated with the Syndrome of W-P-W, including atrial fibrillation paroxysmal, atrial flutter, tachycardia ectopic and supraventricular tachycardia paroxysmal both of the
re the AV node as the tachycardia reentrant AV.
When should I not use?
COLOR MIO should not be used when there are the following clinics:
AV block pre-existing second or third degree without pacemaker, because there is a risk of heart block complete; episodes of bradycardia which give rise to syncope, unless controlled by a pacemaker (amiodarone decreases the automaticity of the sinus node and may produce sinus bradycardia resistant to atropine); and patients with syncope and bundle branch block with study
eletrofisiológico of the His bundle showing an interval HV of over 65 m/sec, unless it is implanted in a pacemaker.
How to use?
Attack: 800 to 1,200 mg a day for a period of 1 to 2 weeks, the dose will be reduced to 600 or 800 mg daily for 1 month and then decreases again until the minimum maintenance dose.
maintenance: approximately 400 mg a day. In patients with ventricular arrhythmias complex, persistent and asymptomatic after myocardial infarction, is administered to 1,000 mg a day for a period of 5 days. The dose will be reduced to 200 mg a day, in the form of maintenance.
In patients with angina pectoris it is recommended the administration of 600 mg daily for 2 weeks and the dose will decrease to 400 mg daily during 2 weeks more. The maintenance dose the minimum effective varies according to the patient’s of 200 to 400 mg a day.
Attack: 600 to 800 mg a day.
maintenance: 200 to 400 mg a day.
Warnings and Precautions
what should I know before using?
Pregnancy: one should take into account the risk-benefit ratio (given their potential adverse effects in the neonate) in patients who during pregnancy showed tachyarrhythmias that are life threatening and that is refractory to other antiarrhythmic drugs. Lactation: amiodarone is excreted in breast milk; the child receives approximately 25% of the dose maternal, so it is not recommended the use of amiodarone in women who are breastfeeding. Geriatrics: the elderly may experience an increase in the incidence of effects of neurotoxic dysfunction and tireoideana.
The risk-benefit ratio should be assessed in the following clinical conditions: congestive heart failure, liver dysfunction, hipopotassemia, dysfunction tireoideana including goiter, or nodules, it is also recommended to consider that during the open-heart surgery in patients receiving amiodarone, there is the risk of hypotension after the elimination of the extracorporeal circulation.
