Hi everyone I am very new to this forum.I have had AF for many years but was controlled by sotolol until last June. I was admitted to hospital after having a TIA, they put me on warfarin and amiodorone. I have now been given a date for my ablation end July at birmingham QE.What I would like to ask is how long can you be on amiodorone for and how often should you have the thyroid and liver tests My test late last year showed I now have an underactive thyroid for which I now take medication (the last time i had a blood test was in february I saw my doctor this morning and she said I don't need another one).And does anyone know how long after the ablation can I stop taking Amiodorone. sorry for all the questions and thank you for helping me realise i'm not alone.
