Adenocard (adenosine) Disease Interactions

There are 4 disease interactions with Adenocard (adenosine):

Major

Adenosine (Includes Adenocard) ↔ sinus- AV node dysfunction

Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Heart Block, Sinus Node Dysfunction

The use of adenosine is contraindicated in patients with second- or third-degree AV block, sick sinus syndrome, or symptomatic bradycardia in the absence of a functional artificial pacemaker.

Antiarrhythmics (Includes Adenocard) ↔ cardiovascular dysfunction

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Hypotension

Antiarrhythmic agents can induce severe hypotension (particularly with IV administration) or induce or worsen congestive heart failure (CHF). Patients with primary cardiomyopathy or inadequately compensated CHF are at increased risk. Antiarrhythmic agents should be administered cautiously and dosage and/or frequency of administration modified in patients with hypotension or adequately compensated CHF. Alternative therapy should be considered unless these conditions are secondary to cardiac arrhythmia.

Antiarrhythmics (Includes Adenocard) ↔ proarrhythmic effects

Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Arrhythmias

Antiarrhythmic agents can induce or worsen ventricular arrhythmias. Ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, and torsades de pointes have occurred in some patients. Patients with underlying cardiac dysfunction, bradycardia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, or high antiarrhythmic serum concentrations are at increased risk for drug-induced arrhythmias. Therapy with antiarrhythmics should be used with extreme caution in patients with or predisposed to arrhythmias. Evidence of improved survival is lacking for use of antiarrhythmic therapy in asymptomatic, non-life-threatening arrhythmias. Therapy with antiarrhythmic agents should be reserved for patients with life-threatening arrhythmias.

Adenosine (Includes Adenocard) ↔ bronchoconstriction

Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Adenosine induces mast cell degranulation and histamine release. Bronchoconstriction has been reported in patients with asthma during therapy with adenosine. Therapy with adenosine should be administered cautiously in patients with obstructive lung disease not associated with bronchoconstriction (emphysema or bronchitis) and should be avoided in patients with bronchoconstriction or bronchospasm (asthma).

Drug Interaction Classification

These classifications are only a guideline. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific individual is difficult to determine. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
