Physicians are advised to be cautious if they co-administer mirabegron with medicinal products that have a narrow therapeutic index and are significantly metabolized by CYP2D6, such as thioridazine, Type 1C antiarrhythmics (e.g., flecainide, propafenone) and tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., imipramine, desipramine) (39).
Historically, maintaining sinus rhythm has meant prescribing antiarrhythmic medications, such as amiodarone (Cordarone[R], Pacerone[R]), dofetilide (Tikosyn[R]), dronedarone (Multaq[R]), flecainide (Tambocor[R]), propafenone (Rhythmol[R]), and Sotalol (Betapace[R]).

These tests are performed by administering sodium channel blockers to patients, such as flecainide, ajmaline, procainamide, propafenone and disopyramide, while recording the changes in the ECG.
Patients randomized to the antiarrhythmic drug arm of the study received treatment with one of six eligible drugs: amiodarone, disopyramide, dronedarone, flecainide, propafenone, or sotalol.
received final approval for propafenone hydrochloride extended-release capsules USP, 225 mg, 325 mg and 425 mg, the generic version of GlaxoSmithKline PLC's Rythmol SR.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted its approval for Propafenone Hydrochloride extended-release capsules USP, 225 mg, 325 mg and 425 mg.
During this process, AF persisted despite attempts to convert to sinus rhythm with propafenone. Based on our experience and an atrial fibrillatory wave amplitude of 1.6 mv with good atrial current of injury, the position of the atrial lead was considered to be acceptable.
It also launched Propafenone Hydrochloride extended-release capsules, the generic of GlaxoSmithKline's Rythmol capsules.
Patients were divided into three groups: group A included patients with no POAF prophylaxis; group B included patients with diltiazem prophylaxis; and group C included patients with preoperative antiarrhythmic therapy (mostly beta-blockers, a few propafenone or amiodarone) that was continued postoperatively.
