13 Sep 2013 Amiodarone is a terrible drug with at least 420 known interactions. The drug is cheap and effective and the doctors have an almost religious belief in the drug. When I took this drug my Osteoarthritis pain increased significantly---almost to he point of being debilitating. When I stopped taking Amiodarone there was, within a few days, a significant decrease in my arthritis pain.

03 May 2011 I was previously on Amiodarone a few years ago. My heart went back into sinus rhythm and the Cardiologist discontinued the drug because of his concern of long-term side-effects. Unfortunately after several months the atrial fibrillation reocurred and a new Cardiologist has perscribed the drug, mainly to control my fast heart rate. It does appear to have done this but only time will tell. Meanwhile I am to have a full blood count, liver and thyroid function tests on May 12, 2011. I am also on Warfarin, Frusemide and Candesartan Cilexetil although I have never suffered from Hypertension
