Biochem/physiol Actions

Dronedarone is a Class III antiarrhythmic and a multi-channel blocker for atrial fibrillation. It blocks potassium, sodium, and calcium channels and also exhibits antiadrenergic properties.

Dronedarone is a synthetic derivative of amiodarone, which belongs to the class of benzofurane anti-arrhythmic compounds. It might moderately block cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) activity. Dronedarone is used to treat atrial flutter.
