Medical attention for Tikosyn

From New Scientist‘s Feedback column:

A fact sheet for the heart drug Tikosyn advises: “Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Tikosyn: Severe allergic reactions… fast, slow, or irregular heartbeat; fainting; heart attack; pale stool; paralysis; pounding in the chest; stopping of the heart; sudden death; yellowing of the skin or eyes.” William Peltz is impressed by the notion of seeking medical attention for sudden death.
