Dosage/Direction for Use
For Life-Threatening Ventricular Arrhythmias such as Ventricular Fibrillation or Hemodynamically Unstable Ventricular Tachycardia: Close monitoring of the patients is indicated during the loading phase, particularly, until risk of recurrent ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation has abated. Loading doses of 800 to 1,600 mg/day are required for 1 to 3 weeks (occasionally longer) until initial therapeutic response occurs. When adequate arrhythmia control is achieved, or if side effects become prominent, Amiodarone HCl dose should be reduced to 600 to 800 mg/day for one month and then to the maintenance dose, usually 400 mg/day.
