Hello I am new to this forum. I live in Newport, Gwent and hope to meet up with some of you from this area/Cardiff soon. I have been on warfarin for 6 weeks with no adverse effects and also Bisoprolol - 10mg daily, prescribed by my GP. I had my first appt with a Cardiologist at the Gwent in Newport last Monday. He has written to my GP asking him to prescribe Amiodarone prior to my having a Cardiversion as he said the results would be better if I was on this drug. Having Googled it I am incredibly worried about the side effects and of the procedure itself. I am expecting only bad responses as this drug sounds horrendous and I really don't want to take it. Help!!
