MY OPINION WHICH APPLIES TO ME: This is a dangerous, very effective drug for my afib but I am afraid of it. Trial and error I found out that by CONTROLLING high blood pressure ELIMINATION of excessive dietary salt, added potassium and magnesium supplements, REDUCED my afib attacks by 90%.

I felt horrible for 3 days after receiving a loading dose in the hospital. However, once I settled into taking 200mg per day, I tolerated it very well. I took it for about 15 months. It helped keep me in sinus rhythm when I was at rest. However, when I worked out or did cardio, I often went into a-fib. So I discontinued taking amiodarone, and I had a catheter rf ablation. The ablation was successful, and I no longer take a-fib medication.

I found out after the fact of taking this medication for a year that it can cause calcification in the eyes, which my optometrist noted I have, and also constipation, edema and a few other issues. My new cardiologist took me off of this medication until I suitable replacement can be found
