If like me you are being forced down the Amiodarone route I just thought I would let you know how I am getting on.
This is my third week so down to maintenance load (200mg / day).
No real signs of side effects. I'm sleeping well and getting on with life. I'm a bit lax with the Factor 50 but have yet to turn blue...maybe that's because I live in Scotland and rarely get two days of consecutive sunshine.
I had my blood taken last week and I did not just how dark it was. I'm not sure if this was a side effect of Amiodarone but my blood was almost black.
The positives is that I have not lapsed back into AF and had stayed steady at 50ish bpm.
I dont want to be on Amiodarone long but have been pleasantly surprised by things so far.
