    It is a polymorphic ventricular tachycardia that exhibits distinct characteristics on the electrocardiogram (ECG). Symptoms and consequences include palpitations, dizziness, lightheadedness (during shorter episodes), fainting (during longer episodes), and sudden cardiac death. Torsades occurs as both an inherited (linked to at least 17 genes) Common causes for torsades de pointes include drug-induced QT prolongation and less often diarrhea, low serum magnesium, and low serum potassium or congenital long QT syndrome.

    Torsades de pointes or torsade de pointes TdP French tɔʁsad də pwɛ̃t, translated as "twisting of peaks", is a specific type of abnormal heart rhythm that can lead to sudden cardiac death. It is a polymorphic ventricular tachycardia that exhibits distinct characteristics on the electrocardiogram ECG. Foscarnet has been associated with postmarketing reports of both QT prolongation and torsade de pointes TdP. Chloroquine administration is also associated with an increased risk of QT prolongation and TdP. If these drugs are administered together, obtain an electrocardiogram and electrolyte concentrations before and periodically during treatment. The aim of the study. This publication provides an overview of published clinical studies results on pharmacokinetic and/or pharmacodynamic drug-drug interactions in humans either healthy volunteers or patients and their electrophysiological consequences manifested as change in the QT/QTc interval.

    Certain drugs and combinations of drugs resulting in drug interactions are common contributors to torsades de pointes risk. It can be seen in malnourished individuals and chronic alcoholics, due to a deficiency in potassium and/or magnesium.

    In small children, the ingestion of 1-2 tablets of chloroquine is a potentially life-threatening ingestion. Chloroquine is on the list of ‘two pills that can kill‘ toddlers. The worst case scenario is an ingestion of 310mg/15kg = ~21 mg/kg. In general 10mg/kg is considered toxic, with increasing mortality at doses 30mg/kg. Torsade de pointes is an uncommon and distinctive form of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia VT characterized by a gradual change in the amplitude and twisting of the QRS complexes around the isoelectric line see the image below. Torsade de pointes, often referred to as torsade, is associated with a prolonged QT interval, which may be co.

    Let me tell you what weaning down from Plaquenil is like. I wonder if what you're noticing is really the change in dose. I say this because Plaquenil has a chemical half-life of 30-60 days you can confirm this on wiki or RX info on the drug--so it takes a LONG time to get out of your system.long for you to notice changes in days.
