I have been on this drug a little over a week. I was taking sotalol which no longer had any effect on my AF. Multaq made me very nauseous every day. And the drug is very expensive! My cost for one month supply is $91. I stopped taking the drug this am. I was not nauseous today but my heart rate has been up to 154 today. Next step...the hospital

Comment:
I have taken every antiarrythmic medication, including rythmol, sotalol, amiodarone and now multaq. Although they enitially helped with the problem, eventually they all quit working. The multaq, after 2 doses, stopped a lot of the arrthymias but my heart rate went up to 95 to 120 at will and my blood pressure was up to 190 over 100.

Comment:
I previously used Rythmol SR 325mg, also have used Amidorone which this drug is sister to. I have had 2 Ablations, one just about 2mos. ago. I feel edgy at times with this drug, like perhaps its working on my thyroid. I would like to talk to someone who has used this drug longer than 1 month. Anyone out there who has used this drug longer than 1 month?
