Does cordarone(amiodarone) cause blackouts?

Probably Not: That would seem unlikely. It is probably more likely that whatever rhythm disturbance you are taking amiodarone for is causing the blackouts. You should talk to your doctor about this, it could potentially be quite dangerous.

Could cordarone(amiodarone) cause blackouts and flushes?

Symptoms?: Are you blaming the the treatment (amiodarone) on the disease (arrhythmia?). If you're blacking out and having near blackouts with hot flushes, you'd better report it to the doctor who prescribed the amiodarone to see if it's not effective?
