What causes disturbed sleep while on Amiodarone HCL?

I am currently taking Amiodarone HCL 200 mg once a day and feel that this medication is interfering with my sleeping at night. When is the best time of day to take this? How will switching to Norpace (Disopyramide) differ and does it require a hospital stay upon switching?

Hello,

Tremors; lack of coordination or difficulty walking; dizziness, weakness or fatigue; trouble sleeping or sleep disturbances are common with amiodarone.

Consult your doctor. No, it won't require a hospital stay upon switching of medication.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
