I think I may be asked to take Amiodarone long term as it has put my heart back into rhythm!! Good news, they said--no need for a cardioversion now. Trouble is ,I don't want to take the drug as side effects can be horrendous , or so I'm told. Big problem for me so far has been Insomnia, but apart from that I'm scared of taking it for long. Any advice would be most welcome.
