Amiodarone Antiarrhythmic Drug
Amiodarone, also sold under the brand names Cordarone® and Pacerone,® are extremely dangerous drugs that were FDA approved for the limited purpose of treating recurring, life-threatening ventricular fibrillation (VFib) but only as a last resort after all other treatments have failed.
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of medical devices, Royal Philips, issued a recall for several million CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), PAP (Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure), and mechanical ventilator devices.
The “off-label” promotion and marketing of drugs by the pharmaceutical industry is a huge driver of profits. Take Cordarone® for instance. Wyeth’s campaign to promote this drug for the treatment of Atrial fibrillation was so successful that Wyeth made an estimated $3 billion from this “off-label” use.
