Brief answer....given below Detailed answer.... Hello, Thanks for the query. MUTITAQ ( DRONEDARONE ) is a benzofuran derivative related to amiodarone, a popular antiarrhythmic. The use of amiodarone is limited by toxicity due its high iodine content (pulmonary fibrosis, thyroid disease) as well as by liver disease. DRONEDARONE is structurally related to amiodarone but doesn't contain iodine atoms and thus it's toxic effects on thyroid and other organs are reduced. In addition it is less LIPOPHILIC and has very short half life compared to amiodarone making it less toxic. I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks
