Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic agent used for various types of tachyarrhythmias, both ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias. Discovered in 1961, it was not approved for use in the United States until 1985. Despite relatively common side-effects, it is used in arrhythmias that are otherwise difficult to treat with medication. Related newer compounds, such as dronedarone, have lower efficacy but a reduced rate of side-effects.
