Comment:
I have CHF and after a holter monitor for 48 hours it was discovered I have A fib. The cardiologist put me on Trangorex (amiodarone)which I have been taking for about a month so far.

Comment:
I researched amiodarone when prescribed after an unsuccessful attempt at an electrocardioversion & was startled to see the drug report on Drugs.com. I spoke w/my cardiologist at the very next visit & I remarked that this drug was "scary". She agreed "it is toxic"& I "would be on it for a short time". This meant 6 months. It worked but the AF eventually ret ... Show Full Comment
