Comment from: ASD Repair User, 55-64 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: July 08

I am taking 1-200 mg. Amio tablet a day as a post-open heart surgery for ASD (hole in heart) repair. I have noticed that I have more acid indigestion. From this site, I realize that part of the formula for Amio is HCL - basically, stomach acid. I have had problems with HCL before. Now I know why Amio is bothering me. Pepto Bismal tabliets help, but I might take something stronger.

I suffered with SVT's for two years afraid to go anywhere in fear of an attack. I was given this medication while in the hosp. with SVT and respatory failure. They had to keep me in a drug induced coma because of the tarcardia was so out of control. The doctors gave me this medication got my taccardia under control. I am still taking it. Have been on it for around 4 years.

Comment from: cordarone 100, 65-74 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: May 16

I have been taking this medicine since about the past 9 months when Holter examination showed some abnormality. Although this drug has helped me control arrythmia, i have some problem with my eyes. My vision seems to have deteriorated specially far vision.Could this be due to the medication. I am also taking Cardivas 25 twice a day since the last 10 years. My EF of heart is 23. My age is 70 years.

Any doctor who prescribes this drug is a murderer. It killed my husband. We were not given a warning or an option. Didn't even know the drug was administered during heart surgery.

I am going to the cardiologist this very day, again, because of side effects of this medication which cause edema and shortness of breath. I am much more miserable than I was with the original condition, but will consider trying other medications for the SVT. I do dread the long time it takes to rid my body of the Amiodarone. I would not recommend this medication to anyone for any reason, even as a last resort.

Comment from: Port, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: April 25

Fatigue, anxiety, sleeplessness, tremor and numb feet and lower legs that makes walking feel weird. Wish I could be put on somethinh else but dread the time it will take to get this toxen out of my body. Was put on beta blocker for high BP but after three months I could not operate in any normal way. I was grounded big time. They discovered that my average heart rate had fallen to 41 beats and took me off the beta blocker immediately. Two weeks later I feel a bit more energised but dread leaving home. Hope this is just the beta blocker taking time to leave my system.
