Amioadrone and weight gain

Hi, I had an abalation on October 19th and a week later a conversion. My dr put me on amioadrone and eliquis. I have hyperthyroidism and take synthroid but I am now gaining weight. The dr said I would only be on amioadrone for 6 weeks and don't read about the side effects so, of course, the first thing I did was read them. One of the side effects was weight gain. Will the weight gain stop when I'm off the drug. I am already overweight and don't want any more. I realize that I am grateful for being in NSR today and this is a vain question but I was just wondering what to expect. I go back to see the EP in December. I am afraid to get off the drug because I don't know if that is why I am in NSR.

  • Be patient it is really early days yet. Short term should not be a major problem but why not speak to your EPs secretary if you are worried.

  • Thank you Bob. Patience has never been my strong suit however this AF journey has taught me a lot about patience.
