Amiodarone is an anti-arrhythmic medications used to treat and prevent a number of irregular heartbeats. This includes ventricular tachycardia (VT), Ventricular fibrillation (VF), wide complex tachycardia as well as Atrial fibrillation (AF) and proximal supra ventricular tachycardia (PSVT). It can be given by mouth, intravenously, intraosseously. Materials And Methods: Study method: This was a prospective observational study conducted for 10 months in a tertiary care hospital. Study site: The study was conducted in a 500 bedded tertiary care hospital in intensive care unit. Study duration: The study was conducted for nine months (February 2017 – November 2017). Results: Out of 216 patients 150 are willing to give information regarding all the demographic details and reasons for usage of Amiodarone, side effects, complications, treatment outcomes and duration of Amiodarone usage was analysed. Discussions: Out of 216 patients 150 are male and 66 are female with marital status of 216 (100%) and education level are mostly tertiary of 108 (50%) and nutritional status of average and hygienic conditions of average are taken in study. The reason for using Amiodarone for patients is due to cardiac arrhythmias of 50% and least of ventricular tachycardia of 5.8%. And treatment regimen of patients mainly prescribed was Amiodarone. Conclusion: Our study conclude that the patients who are suffering with cardiac arrhythmia are mainly using Amiodarone, there is no effect due to the drug so the physicians should monitor and make the treatment effective with different classes of drugs which are effective for cardiac arrhythmias. So as we are clinical pharmacists we should modify the treatment and make the treatment regimen effective and advise the patients about the side effects and complications of drugs prescribed.

Keywords: Cardiac arrhythmias, ventricular tachycardia (VT), Ventricular fibrillation (VF), Atrial fibrillation (AF) and proximal supra ventricular tachycardia (PSVT).
