I have been taking this drug for a month and a half now and it has done a great job of slowing the afib down.The dosage is a bit awkward so my docter prescribed the Rythmol so I checked how much that cost and decided I could live with the generic.No apprent side effects [I used to take amiorodorone] so over all its been a pleasant surprise,first time in four years I"m feeling normal
