After the physical examination, suddenly found arrhythmia, the average person will be shocked, thinking that the heart is out of order. In fact, there are many causes of arrhythmia, including smoking, drinking, drinking tea, coffee, heart disease, anemia and so on. One of the reasons may be the action of drugs. Some drugs may cause arrhythmia when the amount exceeds the normal application. Some drugs may cause symptoms such as palpitation, insomnia, shortness of breath, etc., even if they do not exceed the normal dosage. Here, we list some of the common drugs that may cause arrhythmia. I hope that everyone will strictly follow the doctor’s medication plan and protect their normal heart rhythm when they meet them.
1, antifungal drugs and antibiotics
glycomycin can cause sinus tachycardia; clotrimazole can cause ventricular fibrillation, ventricular flutter Premature ventricular contraction, paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia; antibiotics such as erythromycin and quinolone may induce the risk of torsades de pointes ventricular tachycardia; high-dose berberine intravenous injection may cause cardiac arrest.
Doxepin, amitriptyline, imipramine can cause sinus tachycardia.
3, analgesics and anti-epileptic drugs
large doses of morphine may cause sinus bradycardia; meperidine may cause sinus tachycardia; carbamazepine Can cause second degree II type atrioventricular block; methadone can also cause sinus bradycardia.
4, anticholinergics and anti-shock palsy drugs
Atropine can cause sinus tachycardia, ventricular premature contraction, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation; levodopa A small number of people can cause arrhythmia, including premature ventricular contractions and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia.
5, antihypertensive drugs
methyldopa can cause sinus bradycardia; hydralazine can cause sinus tachycardia; Beta blockers, clonidine, certain calcium antagonists (such as verapamil, diltiazem) can cause sinus bradycardia or atrioventricular block.
6, antipsychotic drugs and hypolipidemic drugs
phenothiazines (chlorpromazine, perphenazine) can cause sinus bradycardia, spastic tachycardia , borderline premature contraction, ventricular premature contraction, supraventricular tachycardia, atrioventricular block, ventricular fibrillation, atrial flutter and cardiac arrest; clofibrate can cause atrial and ventricular pre-term shrink.
How can I minimize the risk of arrhythmia? Mainly to do a reasonable use of drugs, strictly under the guidance of a doctor, on time, according to the amount of medication. Generally, starting from a small dose, the dose should be slowly increased when the effect is not satisfactory, and the minimum effective dose should be gradually determined. The medical professional must be consulted when adding or reducing the dose or taking it with other drugs.
