  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I am concerned about the drug Pacerone, as I am seeing no improvement after being taken off Propafenone 225MG every 8 hours, and the Dialtiazem also... suddenly my heart rate put me in the hospital emergency room, resulting in a cardioversion to slow the rate from 205.
    The replacement of Dialtiazem, and adding of Pacerone has me concerned, and I want to know what reactions have been reported, so I can discuss them with my doctor.
