Possible Interaction: Procainamide and Digitalis



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

This therapy may restore sinus rhythm, but conversion to sinus rhythm often requires the combined use of digitalis with a β-blocker or class I antiarrhythmic drug (quinidine, disopyramide, procainamide , propafenone, or flecainide).
Journal of cardiovascular pharmacology  •  1991  |  View Paper
Both diphenylhydantoin sodium and procaine amide can suppress digitalis arrhythmias due to enhanced automaticity, but procaine amide may promote “re-entry” arrhythmias by potentiating the intraventricular conduction defect caused by the glycoside.
Circulation  •  1967  |  View Paper
In three experiments, the ventricular tachycardia induced by digitalis was changed by procainamide to a slower, multifocal ventricular rhythm with widened complexes.
