Double check those medications if you have long QT! Don't count on the pharmacy as we found out this week. My sister, who has long QT, not only told her doctor about it, but also the pharmacy and still she was prescribed Zithromax and received and starting taking Zithromax. The most current list can be found on the SADS website : http://www.sads.org/index.php/wrapper.html I also have long QT and was fortunate to have an astute dentist who knew that the adrenaline and epinephrine in the novocaine injections was not allowed. If you have long QT, carry this list with you ad give copies to your doctor and pharmacist. I do now.
