Taking Amiodarone For Afib And Arrhythima.

Taking Amiodarone For Afib And Arrhythima.

I am taking two a day. I have noticed a shortness of breath upon exertion. Has anyone else run into this problem? I understand shortness of breath can be a side effect while on this med.

I was on amio for several years with blood workups for AFIB. Cardiologist prescribed. Suddenly amio stopped controlling afib. Started eliquis and considering ablation. FYI my primary care dr hated that I took amio so long.

I was on amioradone for a year and almost died from pneumonia which is a side affect. Horrible drug and most docs try to avoid using it.

Amiodorone has many side effects I took it for 6 months it affected my thyroid . I took a very small dose 100 mg shortness of breath may be an allergic reaction speak to your doctor!
