Direction to Use

  • This medication is given by injection into a vein (IV) as directed by your doctor.
  • Follow all instructions for proper mixing and dilution with the correct IV fluids. If you have questions regarding the use of this medication, consult your pharmacist.
  • Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid.
  • Do not exceed the recommended rate of infusion. Infusing amiodar too fast may result in serious side effects such as severe lowering of the blood pressure.
  • Your dosage and infusion rate may be adjusted depending upon your medical condition and response to therapy. A chemical (DEHP) found in plastic IV tubing may harm young children (male reproductive system effects). Amiodarone can cause this chemical to leach out of the tubing. Therefore, caution is advised when using this drug in children.
  • Special administration guidelines should be followed (e.g., multiple bolus dosing) to minimize exposure to DEHP.
