Cordarone 200 mg contains Amiodarone hydrochloride, which is one of the most commonly used anti-arrhythmic drugs. It controls even the beating of your heart. Taking the anti-arrhythmic drug helps your heartbeat to return to normal. Cordarone is a prescription medicine used to treat heartbeats where other therapies have not worked or cannot be used. It treats an illness called Wolf-Parkinson’s-white syndrome. This electrical abnormality in the heart leads to a fast heart rate originating above the ventricles. Amiodarone tablets effectively treat other fast or uneven heartbeats known as atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation. The medicine is usually prescribed when other medications can not be used. The tablets can also be given to people with a fast heartbeat, which may happen suddenly and may be uneven. Treatment should be initiated only under medical supervision. </p>
