What are the signs and symptoms of atrial tachycardia?
Usually side effects arise after taking for a long time
Amiodaron is a powerful antiarrhythmic medication but has many side effects. Usually majority of side effects arise when it is taken for a long period more than 6 months.
You can take Amiodaron for some time and after have a 24 hour ECG monitoring to see if it works well, if there are still arrhythmias, then it is useless to cintinue amiodaron, in this case rate control with only beta blocker is better and safer.
Come back if you have any further questions
this is from my records. DR Landers documented that the patient had sick sinus syndrome with exacerbation while on sotalol on beta blocker therapy. I have a pace maker now. I have not started to take the amiodarone. I am afraid to. Do you think I would make Dr Landers or staff mad to call them and explain my fears. Will my heart enlarge if I continue the way I am.
this is from a coupl
If your doctor has told you the dose of Amiodaron, then don't worry, just take it, you will need to have an ECG in 7-10 day after you start Amiodaron, so you will see your doctor and ask questions if you have some during that time. It is not common to have such early complacations, so nothing bad will happen during that short period.
If your doctor didn't tell you the dose, then you should contact him/her for the dose anyway.
Wishing you a good health
