This is my first posting, however I do hope someone will be able to help. I started taking Amiodarone in April, after the first month my cardiologist reduced the dosage from 200mg to 100mg a day, which suits me much better. My problem is during the hot weather we have been having I have been getting what I call "prickles", mainly affecting my arms and neck, I am aware that one of the cautions is not to go out in the sun, but even with factor 50, I am still getting this prickling of the skin, not only that if I drink a cup of coffee I get the same effect. I just wondered if it is just me, or has anyone else suffered from this overheating problem. Any help of advice would be appreciated.
