My mother took Amiodarone for a few months since Feb. and she was taken off of it due to the side effects (tremor, hair and weight loss). She was given two options, Multaq and tikosyn. She does not want to be admitted into the hospital (too frightened) for the tikosyn and the multaq can be taken at home. Could you give me the pros and cons of these two medicaction?

Of course.-

Dronedarone is an antiarrhythmic medication that affects the rhythm of heartbeats.

Dronedarone is used to help keep the heart beating normally in people with life-threatening heart rhythm disorders of the atrium (the upper chambers of the heart that allow blood to flow into the heart). Dronedarone is used to treat atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.


Multaq offers a safe antiarrhythmic that has efficacy in treating atrial fibrillation and can be initiated as an outpatient. The unique benefit is that this medication was demonstrated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular hospitalization in patients with paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter and associated cardiovascular risk factors. This is the first antiarrhythmic drug to demonstrate this kind of benefit in AF patients.
