Cardasol 150mg Injection


Overview

Introduction

Cardasol 150mg Injection is used to treat various types of serious irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) such as fibrillation and tachycardia (increased heart rate). It is an anti-arrhythmic type of medicine which rapidly restores your heart to a steady and regular rhythm.

Cardasol 150mg Injection is given by a slow drip (infusion) into a vein under the supervision of a doctor. Continuous monitoring of blood pressure and heart rate may be needed while this medicine is administered. It is important that you keep having the injections until your doctor decides it is safe to stop them. After this, your doctor may prescribe tablets instead of the injection. If you stop taking this medicine, you may get dangerous uneven heartbeats, which can be life-threatening.

The most common side effects of this medicine include decreased blood pressure (hypotension), heart failure, decreased heart rate (bradycardia), nausea, tiredness, blurred vision and being more sensitive to sunlight. This medicine can also cause problems with your liver, lungs, nerves and thyroid gland. Ask your doctor what signs to look out for and report any symptoms you have. This medicine takes a long time to get cleared from the body. You may continue to have side effects after you stop using it. Ask your doctor about ways to prevent or reduce them.

Generally, an oral tablet of Cardasol does not affect blood pressure. But, when given through an injection intravenously (in the vein) then it may decrease in the blood pressure. To prevent this your doctor or nurse may give Cardasol slowly. Along with that, you may also be prescribed medicines which increase blood pressure (vasopressor agents) to the infusion.

Q. What are the warning signals of liver toxicity caused by Cardasol?

The warning signals of liver toxicity include yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice), tiredness, nausea, vomiting, dark-colored urine, pale-colored stools, loss of appetite, stomach pain or high temperature. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms.

Q. What kind of vision problems occur with Cardasol?

You may experience blurred vision or see circle around dazzling light (halos). It may also make your eyes dry or sensitive to light. It can even cause permanent blindness. Therefore, consult your doctor in case you experience any such problems while on Cardasol.

Q. What does Cardasol do to the heart?

Cardasol blocks certain electrical signals in the heart that can cause an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). This way, it helps to restore normal heart rhythm and maintains a regular, steady heartbeat.
