Cordarone (amiodarone) is an anti-arrhythmic drug and is given for cardiac arrhythmias(commonly ventricular premature beats,Atrial fibrillation etc). Synprotik is a probiotic and a supportive drug.Vibact is again a probiotic containing Lactobacillus.

Lsolazine is combination of Isosorbide dinitrate & Hydralazine and is coronary dilators and used for cardiac angina. Ceftum (Cefuroxime) is an antibiotic and is used to treat infection , usually for 5-7 days.
