  1. A is the answer and the winners are Area and Eze
    Tambocor contains flecainide, which may be of value in serious symptomatic
    ventricular arrhythmias. It is also indicated for junctional re-entry tachycardias
    and for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. It is available as tablets or injections for
    intravenous administration. Hazardous interactions may be expected when
    flecainide is administered concurrently with drugs such as amiodarone,
    tricyclic antidepressants, terfenadine, ritonavir, dolasetron, clozapine, vera￾pamil, and with beta-blockers. Amiodarone is a drug that is also indicated in
    the treatment of arrhythmias. An example of a proprietary name for amio￾darone is Cordarone X.
