Answer

Patients who have experienced polymorphic VT in association with a prolonged QT interval as a result of antiarrhythmic agents or other drugs should be cautioned to avoid exposure to all agents associated with QT prolongation. A list of such agents can be found at the Arizona Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics (AZCERT) website.
