I am male, 69, & am now trying Multaq, knowing it is not the equal of Ami., but hoping the Myopathy may not deteriorate further now I am off the Amiodarone. I am on the new anticoag Eliquis (Apixaban, a BMY product) instead of Plavix, in case of AF breakthrough.Does anyone know of any effective but less toxic drug than Ami in the pipeline? I have had 4 unsuccessful operations to burn off the "rogue" electrical impulses which cause the AF.I am generally fit and active but couldn't face into a life of even intermittent untreated/uncontrolled AF. I was on 900 mg. Propafenone for many years, which worked very well until the specialist told me I had to stop using that as it was incompatible with a 40% blockage in one artery.I suggested an angioplast and /or a stent so I could revert to the Propafenone but he wouldn't agree.I am really between a rock and a hard place and it is very depressing although I am not ordinarily a depressive person.I am in remission from stage 3 advanced prostate cancer for the last 3 years having had treatment (Radiation and androgen deprivation therapy) and the treatment is seemingly the cause of osteoporosis which has recently been diagnosed via a Dexa scan, even though I have been taking Calcichew D3 Forte for the last several years to try to prevent the damage from the cancer treatment, obviously unsuccessfully! Any help or good advice would be greatly appreciated.
