I am currently under the care of a new cardiologist. He has prescribed (within the last 30 days) the drug amiodarone for me to take ... along with my warfarin. This shows up as a major risk factor in your website. None of the other cardiologists I have used prescribed this for long term use. I have taken this drug once before because my heart rate had been 140-160 and was hospitalized for that increase and the amiodarone was prescribed to slow my heart and give it time to heal. That I understand. But my new cardio has decided I should take it long-term. I'm confused! I thought this drug (according to previous doc's) was a short term use drug. I don't know who to believe!
Major Risk on two of my prescribed drugs - Amiodarone and Warfarin?
