Hi, does or has anyone on here any experience of side effects with amiodarone and sunlight exposure? I've been taking it since May and I'm going on a beach holiday to the Greek island of Kos next week (holiday was booked before I knew I would be on this medication). I've been warned that, due to the toxicity of the drug, exposure to sunlight can cause skin to change colour (blue and/or grey) and this is irreversible. I've just had a week in Vegas which was very hot and sunny but not really an outdoor type holiday so was pretty easy to restrict my exposure. Kos is going to be a lot more difficult and I'm interested to know other people's experiences and any possible tips. Many thanks.
