When Is The Best Time To Take Amiodarone


For most patients, amiodarone ER is effective when started within 12 hours after a heart attack or unstable angina episode. However, if the patient has other medical problems that might interfere with its use (such as congestive heart failure), it should be given at least 2 hours before planned procedures. Amiodarone ER may also be used to treat abnormal and potentially dangerous electrical and mechanical activity in the heart’s electrical system called supraventricular tachycardias (SVT).
