Like to stop taking amiodarone. Is there any alternative?
There are( Multaq etc). Ask you Doctor. But, Amiodarone is a " heavy duty" and highly efficient drug that usually is given as a line of "last resort"
after other drugs have not worked well. Because of its many side effects and drug interactions, your doctors probably feel you really need it. Thyroid problems are a side effect due to, possibly, the high iodine content of the drug but having regular blood tests for thyroid function can head off bad situations.
