Tachyra 100mg (Amiodarone)

Tachyra general information

What is Tachyra used for?

Tachyra tablets 100mg are used to treat severe heart rhythm disorders or arrhythmias that do respond to other therapies or when other treatments cannot be used.  These conditions are due to irregular electrical activity of the heart.  They include tachyarrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, which is the most common form of arrhythmia, ventricular fibrillation and atrial flutter, characterised by fast and/or irregular heartbeat due to abnormal electrical discharges in the atria (upper chambers of the heart) or the ventricles (lower chambers of the heart), which can increase risk of heart failure and stroke.  If the ventricles beat is too rapid then the supply of blood and therefore, oxygen to the heart itself and the rest of the body is compromised.  This increases the workload on the heart, which also increases the demand for oxygen and can result in ischemia (restriction of oxygen to the tissues) and can lead to heart disease.  If the atria contract too fast or irregularly, they cannot completely empty of blood and this increases risk of blood clots.  If the ventricles contract too fast or irregularly, the heart cannot pump efficiently and this can become life-threatening.  Often there are no symptoms but symptoms can include palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath and chest pains.  There are several possible causes for arrhythmia, which include high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, pericarditis (inflammation of the pericardium) and heart valve disease.  Tachyra tablets 100mg help slow down the heart rate and restore the heartbeat to a normal regular rhythm.

How does Tachyra work?

Tachyra tablets 100mg contain amiodarone, a class III antiarrhythmic drug used to treat severe arrhythmias.  Amiodarone acts directly on both nodes of the heart’s conduction system, which control the electrical current that stimulates contraction of the heart.  The sinus node or sinoatrial node (SA) is the pacemaker for the heart and initiates the contraction.  The atrioventricular (AV) node controls the rate of the heartbeat.  The AV node sets the rhythm for contraction of the heart that forces blood from the atria or upper chambers to the ventricles or lower chambers of the heart and slows the transmission of current from the atria to the ventricles, to ensure that the atria fill up with blood fully before the next contraction.  The electrical current must pass through the AV node, to be correctly regulated.  Amiodarone in Tachyra tablets 100mg works by reducing the speed of conduction and increasing the refractory period of the AV node, which lengthens the gap between one heart beat and the next and slows down the heart rate while restoring a regular pace.  The action potential, which drives the heart muscle contraction is based on myocardial (heart muscle) depolarisation and repolarisation, which is when sodium and potassium ions build up on one side of the membrane and are then released through special voltage-gated ion channels, causing a rapid rise and fall of membrane potential (the difference in electrical potential between the inside and the outside of the heart muscle cells).  Amiodarone in Tachyra tablets 100mg is classified as a class III antiarrhythmic, because it works by blocking potassium channels in the myocardial cells, which delays repolarisation, increases the duration of the action potential and thereby increases the refractory period.  Tachyra tablets 100mg are used to control tachyarrhythmias associated both chamber of the heart and include Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, which is a condition where electrical signals travel down an abnormal accessory pathway between the two chambers of the heart, which bypasses the normal conduction system so that the electrical signal does not pass through the AV node.

What does Tachyra contain?

Tachyra tablets contains the active ingredient amiodarone hydrochloride (100mg), used to treat arrhythmias to slow down the heart rate and restore the heartbeat to a normal regular rhythm.

What are the side effects of Tachyra?

The most commonly reported side effects when taking Tachyra tablets 100mg include, abnormal thyroid function (both under and over active thyroid), bradycardia (slow heart rate), gastrointestinal problems (nausea, vomiting, constipation anorexia), neurologic problems (malaise, fatigue, tremor, involuntary movements, poor coordination and gait, peripheral neuropathy), ophthalmic abnormalities (optic neuropathy and/or optic neuritis), corneal microdeposits, skin photosensitivity, skin discolouration, pulmonary toxicity (pneumonitis or fibrosis, pleuritis, bronchiolitis), exacerbation of arrhythmia.

When should Tachyra not be used?

You should not use Tachyra tablets 100mg if you:

  • are allergic to amiodarone or iodine or any ingredients in Tachyra
  • are pregnant or are breastfeeding
  • have thyroid function problems
  • have severe kidney, liver disease or lung disease
  • have cardiogenic shock, which is failure of the heart to pump efficiently due to damage to the heart muscle usually caused by heart attack
  • have heart problems including sinus bradycardia (low heart rate) and sino-atrial heart block that can cause syncope (feinting), unless used with a pacemaker
  • dink grapefruit juice as this can increase levels of amiodarone
  • are taking drugs that can induce torsades de pointes, an abnormal heart rhythm associated with a prolonged QT interval that can result in cardiac arrest, including: the vasodilator vincamine; cisapride for increased gastrointestinal mobility; some neuroleptic antipsychotic drugs like thioridazine and pimozide; the antibiotics erythromycin and pentamidine given intravenously; antiarrhythmics like disopyramide, procainamide, sotalol, bepridil, mexiletine, quinidine; antidepressants including lithium, trazodone, and tricyclics like amitriptyline
  • are taking medicines that interact with Tachyra, including fluoroquinolone antibiotics, antihistamines like terfenadine and astemizole, antimalarials like quinine and, chloroquine, monoamine oxidase inhibitor antidepressants, beta blockers, calcium channel inhibitors like diltiazem and verapamil, stimulant laxatives like bisacodyl, diuretics, systemic corticosteroids, antihistamines like loratadine, digoxin for heart failure, the anticoagulants warfarin and dabigatran, the anticonvulsant phenytoin, the antiarrhythmic flecainide, the immunosuppressant cyclosporin, the anaesthetic fentanyl, statins for high cholesterol, cimetidine for reflux

What medications interact with Tachyra?

Several medications interact with Tachyra tablets 100mg and should either not be taken while you are taking Tachyra or only after discussion and instruction from your doctor:
