Reviews for Amiodarone

Ron · Taken for 2 to 5 years December 8, 2019

“I have been on this drug amiodarone for 3 years for V-tach resulting from bad wiring. For the lung problems, I take an expectorant periodically to relief congestion. I go to the gym three times a week and work out with weights and treadmill to combat muscle weakness and shortness of breath. Very important to keep weight down as this will add to shortness of breath. I use L-Arginine to help with male performance do not use Viagra...too dangerous. The ICD has shocked me around 8 times since 2014...this drug did not help with that. Ejection Fraction at 25%. Recently had an endo-ablation. Next is a epi-ablation as the doctors seek to eliminate this drug from my medication regiment. The shocks originally occurred prior to the prescribing of this drug. Once on 400mg/day shocks stopped. Last year dosage was reduced to 200mg/day and shocks returned four months later. Move to 600mg/day until ablation, now on 200mg/day since PVC's stopped. I am 69 years old.”

“I use amiodarone as current medical treatment for WPW Syndrome. It is very convenient as a medication as I have to take only 1 or 2 amiodarone pill per day as compared to other meds like beta blockers or flecanide which needs a round the clock dose. However, the downside is all the side effects that this medication have. From elevated liver enzymes for someone who does not consume alcoholic drinks to photophobia (light sensitivity) this med may not be for everyone. I wear tinted prescription lenses of 85% density day and night as I became sensitive to lights after 2 months of the treatment. But, I accept to live like a visually impaired person rather than constantly having tachycardia episodes that lasts for hours and having WPW attacks at night even when I sleep. Take it at your own risk bearing in mind that sometimes the therapeutic benefit it gives outweighs the side effects.”

Pacerone (amiodarone): “The Pacerone takes a couple of weeks to kick in but works great after that.”
