    My mother passed away in January 2011 after many years of being on amiodarone.Death certificate stated she had interstitial pneumonitis and respiratory. As you may know this drug causes respiratory failure and I believe it contributed to her death as she was never diagnosed or had any respiratory problems.

    I am taking 1-200 mg. Amio tablet a day as a post-open heart surgery for ASD (hole in heart) repair. I have noticed that I have more acid indigestion. From this site, I realize that part of the formula for Amio is HCL - basically, stomach acid. I have had problems with HCL before. Now I know why Amio is bothering me. Pepto Bismal tabliets help, but I might take something stronger.
