Pitayine Patient Information

Before prescribing QUINAGLUTE® as prophylaxis against recurrence of atrial fibrillation, the physician should inform the patient of the risks and benefits to be expected. Discussion should include the facts

  • that the goal of therapy will be a reduction (probably not to zero) in the frequency of episodes of atrial fibrillation; and
  • that reduced frequency of fibrillatory episodes may be expected, if achieved, to bring symptomatic benefit; but
  • that no data are available to show that reduced frequency of fibrillatory episodes will reduce the risks of irreversible harm through stroke or death; and in fact
  • that such data as are available suggest that treatment with QUINAGLUTE® is likely to increase the patient's risk of death.

To confirm whether this is the most current prescribing information available on Quinaglute®, or to obtain the most current prescribing information, please call Berlex Laboratories at 1-888-BERLEX-4 (choose option #4, Product Usage Information).
