Identification

Name
Quinidine
Accession Number
DB00908
Description

An optical isomer of quinine, extracted from the bark of the Cinchona tree and similar plant species. This alkaloid dampens the excitability of cardiac and skeletal muscles by blocking sodium and potassium currents across cellular membranes. It prolongs cellular action potential, and decreases automaticity. Quinidine also blocks muscarinic and alpha-adrenergic neurotransmission.

Pharmacodynamics

Quinidine, a hydantoin anticonvulsant, is used alone or with phenobarbital or other anticonvulsants to manage tonic-clonic seizures, psychomotor seizures, neuropathic pain syndromes including diabetic neuropathy, digitalis-induced cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiac arrhythmias associated with QT-interval prolongation.

Mechanism of action

Quinidine acts on sodium channels on the neuronal cell membrane, limiting the spread of seizure activity and reducing seizure propagation. The antiarrhythmic actions are mediated through effects on sodium channels in Purkinje fibers. Quinidine may also act on the slow inward calcium current (ICa), the rapid (IKr) and slow (IKs) components of the delayed potassium rectifier current, the inward potassium rectifier current (IKI), the ATP-sensitive potassium channel (IKATP) and Ito.

Drug Interactions
This information should not be interpreted without the help of a healthcare provider. If you believe you are experiencing an interaction, contact a healthcare provider immediately. The absence of an interaction does not necessarily mean no interactions exist.
DrugInteraction
AbacavirAbacavir may decrease the excretion rate of Quinidine which could result in a higher serum level.
AbametapirThe serum concentration of Quinidine can be increased when it is combined with Abametapir.
AbataceptThe metabolism of Quinidine can be increased when combined with Abatacept.
AbciximabThe therapeutic efficacy of Abciximab can be increased when used in combination with Quinidine.
AbirateroneThe metabolism of Quinidine can be decreased when combined with Abiraterone.
AcalabrutinibThe metabolism of Quinidine can be decreased when combined with Acalabrutinib.
AcarboseAcarbose may decrease the excretion rate of Quinidine which could result in a higher serum level.
AcebutololAcebutolol may increase the arrhythmogenic activities of Quinidine.
AceclofenacAceclofenac may decrease the excretion rate of Quinidine which could result in a higher serum level.
AcemetacinAcemetacin may decrease the excretion rate of Quinidine which could result in a higher serum level.

Food Interactions
  • Exercise caution with grapefruit products. Grapefruit may delay the absorption of quinidine, and inhibit its metabolism through CYP3A4.
  • Exercise caution with St. John's Wort.
  • Take separate from antacids. Antacids may reduce the absorption of quinidine.
  • Take with or without food. Taking quinidine with food may slow its absorption.
