Thanks for writing to us.
Multaq contains dronedarone
, a heart rate
controlling drug.In atrial fibrillation
heart rate should be maintained below 75 hence you need to continue it for long term.
In atrial fibrillation due to risk of blood clotting coumadin should also be continued for long term.
Coumadin is anticoagulant
which makes blood thin and prevents it from clotting.
You need to monitor PT/INR every monthly to maintain PT/INR in therapeutic range of 2-3.It requires strict monitoring as it has very narrow therapeutic range and other drugs and food can alter its metabolism
Hope this could help you.
Wish you good health.
