How long does it take for cordarone to get of system?
Asked by Angel Mcniell 6 months ago.
To my knowledge the metabolism of cordarone(amiodarone) is not well understood and it is not at all clear how it is excreted(if it is) or accumulates somewhere. Answered by Sue Kuchinski 6 months ago.
If I have a pacemaker, do I need to continue cordarone (Amiodarone)?
Asked by Patricia Eagles 6 months ago.
It depends entirely on your underlying condition. Your cardiologist will tell you one way or the other. Answered by Karole Chimenti 6 months ago.
Many people hope that when they get a device put in they can come off all of their medications--this is not the case. In fact, devices usually work with medications much better than they work by themselves. With a pacemaker, there are some cases when medications that prevent tachycardic (fast) rhythms are still used in conjunction with a pacemaker. Amiodarone would fall under that category. Conversely, medication is sometimes is used to keep the heart rate from slowing down, but that generally is not considered the best approach. Medicine has moved toward using devices more than anti-arrhythmic drugs, specifically, to try to lower the risk of an arrhythmia and its consequences. This is because many of the anti-arrhythmic drugs have side effects and some toxicity. If you have a biventricular pacemaker, if your heart function improves enough, some of the medications that appeared to be necessary before can be completely stopped. Please know that the decision to continue or discontinue anti-arrythmia medications, such as Amiodarone, is considered on a case-by-case basis with your cardiologist. I hope that this was helpful.

I'll bet you don't drink much water, do you? It's most likely because you don't feel thirsty. But there's something you should know about thirst - it's one of the last signals the body gives to let you know that you need to drink water. Since around the age of 20, we start to lose our perception of thirst. It's such a gradual thing that we don't notice it. By the time we reach our advanced years, our perception of thirst is almost non-existent. Just because we don't feel thirsty doesn't mean the body doesn't need water. People lose almost a gallon of water each day through respiration, kidney function and perspiration. This water must be replaced - and if you're not drinking water because you don't feel thirsty, then you become dehydrated, and this is the underlying cause of most health problems. Sintrom is used as a blood thinner. Water is a natural blood thinner. You can drink as much as you like and it has no side effects. Most people don't think much about water, however. They're led to believe that water has no medicinal value and that it can be replaced with soft drinks, coffee, energy drinks and other beverages. This can't be farther from the truth. Water is the most important resource the body needs to survive - without water, nothing lives. I suspect that if you would start drinking more water and using a little more salt, both of the problems you listed would sort themselves out. But you should never just stop taking medication - adjusting or stopping medication is your doctor's job. The link below has a guide that will show you how to drink water properly to correct your dehydration. It is located about halfway down the page just under where it says, "FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, DRINK WATER!". Be sure to read the red text. This is a conversion for older people and children. I'm not insinuating anything here, of course, but it's there for you to decide whether it applies to you or not. (Like how I got out of that one? LOL) Answered by Bonita Hemmeter 6 months ago.

Sounds like you have an allergy against the medication! Contact your doctor! Answered by Cathryn Meneal 6 months ago.
Is the cordarone a new medication? If so, it might be an allergic reaction. Even if not, it might be an allergic reaction to something else. It's hard to tell from these details. You should see a dr. Answered by Tonisha Drevs 6 months ago.

i believe it's 18 mL of Cordarone, not 1.8 mL... =) i also got 1.4 mL/min & 83 mL/hr... The 1mg/minute part is what kinda confuses me... But if it's not part of the solution, then, the above answers should be right...?????? lolz.. BABY, THANK YOU FOR THIS! ^_^ LOVE YAH!! Answered by Margit Bergstresser 6 months ago.
do your own homework, this should be pretty basic. 1.8 ml of Cordarone per 500 ml of D5W, 1.4 ml/min , which means 83 ml/hr.... should be right. i hope, i just finished nursing school so hopefully i learned something. Answered by Lemuel Renert 6 months ago.

Same as ALL the rest of the druggie and chemical garbage your quack will shove down your throat in the name of science. It's all the same rubbish, any chemical will have an adverse effect. it used to be called "common sense". Useless drug anyway. It is 'claimed' to act directly on heart tissue. Give me a break, there is only one thing known to modern science that actually 'works' at cellular level, and your quack can't prescribe it anyway. Good luck.
