It has also shown to double the risk of stroke and death and hospitalization due to heart failure in patients with atrial fibrillation.

No dosage adjustment is recommended for patients with moderate hepatic impairment, however its use is contraindicated in patients with severe hepatic impairment. Additionally hepatocellular liver injury, including acute liver failure has been reported in patients using dronedarone in the postmarketing setting.
