The list is maintained by Raymond L. Woosley, MD, PhD, President, AZCERT and SADS Scientific Advisor.
Drugs are listed with up to 2 common brand names. There are many more brand names for some of the common drugs, such as pseudoephedrine and erythromycin. It is also important to look at the list of active drugs in medicines that contain a combination of drugs such as Zyrtec-D®, which contains pseudoephedrine. This means that you must look up each ingredient of the drug to see if it is on this list.
The list is sorted into four groups based on the risk for people with LQTS. It is recommended that those with inherited long QT syndrome not take any of the drugs on these lists. It is also recommended that people with LQTS avoid any herbal medicines/remedies as these may contain ingrediants that could cause an event.
