Levoketoconazole (Recorlev), a newly approved drug to treat Cushings Disease, has been found to cause QT prolongation but lacks conclusive evidence of TdP at this time. Based on the available evidence, Levoketoconazole has been added to the Possible Risk of TdP category of QTdrugs.
Clofazimine is a drug used with rifampin and dapsone to treat leprosy. It has been in the Possible Risk of TdP category because of evidence of QT prolongation. Almost all TdP cases were confounded by either concomitant therapy with QT prolonging drugs, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia or diagnosis of congenital long QT syndrome. For this reason, clofazimine was moved from the Possible Risk of TdP category to the Conditional Risk of TdP category.
As demonstrated by these revisions, the QTdrugs list is dynamic and can change frequently. For that reason and to provide you with the most up-to-date information, AZCERT requires registration for access to the QTdrugs list so you can be informed by email when the list is revised. To make a quick search of the QTdrugs list for specific drugs we recommend using the CredibleMeds smartphone app (Apple or Android).
