Increased risk of bradycardia and hypotension with remifentanil and sufentanil. Increased levels of both everolimus and verapamil on concurrent use. May increase doxorubicin, buspirone, carbamazepine, ciclosporin, epirubicin, eplerenone, quinidine, statins, sirolimus, tacrolimus, quinupristin/dalfopristin levels.

Increased risk of QT prolongation with dofetilide, ranolazine, sertindole. Additive bradycardia with ivabradine. Increased risk of heart block with clonidine. Increased risk of acute hyperkalaemia and CV collapse with dantrolene.


1st degree AV block. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, patients with decreased neuromuscular transmission. Bradycardia or conduction disturbances. Hepatic or renal impairment.
