About EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET

EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET is used to treat an illness called Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. This is where your heart beats unusually fast. It also treats other types of fast or uneven heartbeats known as' atrial flutter' or' atrial fibrillation'. Taking the tablets helps your heartbeat to return to normal. EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET Tablets are used only when other medicines cannot be used. Atrial fibrillation is a condition in which two upper chambers of the heart (the atria) beat without coordination. Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome is a condition in which an extra electrical pathway between the upper and lower chambers of the heart causes a rapid heartbeat.

EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET contains 'amiodarone' that controls the heart's uneven beating (arrhythmia) or prevents irregular heartbeat. It blocks the potassium channels and reduces the impulses that cause abnormal heartbeat.  

Common side-effects of EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET are blurred vision or visual halos around light. EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET may affect thyroid gland function. It may also cause skin photosensitivity (redness or rashes on the sun-exposed skin, especially the face) and tremors when you move your arms or legs. Consult your doctor if any of these effects persist or worsen over time.

Do not take EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET if you are allergic to iodine, amiodarone, or any other anti-arrhythmic drugs. Do not take this medicine if you have atrioventricular (AV) or sinoatrial (SA) heart block (disorders in the rhythm of the heart), unless you have a pacemaker or a history of sinus bradycardia (slow heartbeats), or if your heart cannot pump blood properly. EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET contains iodine and lactose. So, inform your doctor if you have lactose intolerance or any thyroid problems. Do not take EURYTHMIC 100MG TABLET if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take alcohol, as it may worsen the condition. Do not use it in children unless prescribed by your doctor.

It causes poor blood flow into the heart. Symptoms include palpitations (racing or pounding heart), shortness of breath, and tiredness.

Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome: WPW syndrome is a condition in which the upper and lower chambers (ventricles) of the heart cause rapid heartbeat because of an extra electrical pathway present between them. This condition is present at birth. Symptoms include rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) and dizziness.
