Drug Mode of Action ::  

Propafenone is a class 1C antiarrhythmic drug with local anaesthetic effects, and a direct stabilising action on myocardial membranes. The electrophysiological effect manifests itself in a reduction of upstroke velocity (Phase 0) of the monophasic action potential. In Purkinje fibers, and to a lesser extent myocardial fibers, propafenone reduces the fast inward current carried by sodium ions. Diastolic excitability threshold is increased and effective refractory period prolonged. Propafenone reduces spontaneous automaticity and depresses triggered activity.

Drug Interactions ::

Effect may be potentiated by local anesth, ?-blockers, TCA. May increase plasma level of propranolol, metoprolol, desipramine, cyclosporin, digoxin, theophylline. Plasma conc may rise when taken simultaneously w/ cimetidine or quinidine. May enhance effect of anticoagulant. Simultaneous administration w/ phenobarb or rifamycin may decrease propafenone plasma conc, possibly in sub-therapeutic levels.
