This is for those of you that take amiodarone. I'm wondering how long you've been taking it and what dosage? Any major side effects? My doctor wants me to start 100 mg daily. It scares me as I've read so much negative about long term use, but that it does help with rhythm control. I'm 62 (almost in November) and I don't want to be having major health issues from this med in 10 years! Guess I'm just scared. I've had 3 ablations, the last one this past May and it failed. 2 cardioversions in July and August, both only kept me in rhythm for a few days. I'm in the U.S. and most EP's don't do more than 3 ablations. He doesn't believe a 4th will help me. Thanks for any info you can give me!
