Hi , I wrote a blog on here some weeks ago. I’m a 45 year old quite fit and healthy person who has recently started having daily bouts of AF which are strong and out of control, sometimes for hours on end. Laying down seems to be my biggest trigger. Having had another recent consultation I have been told I also have Atrial flutter.
I’m currently taking bisoprolol, fleccanaide and appixaban which doesn’t seem to be working and having increased the dosage has brought on my asthma which I rarely suffer with.
I have been told that I require 2 operations to sort this, one of which was going to be completed in the next 8 weeks. This has now change and I will have to wait 8 months ( uk NHS) for both operations to be completed together.
I am going to have to stop my medication and be prescribed AMIODERONE.
This will then prepare me for a cardioversion ( restart) in the next 6 weeks prior to having my operations later on in the year.
My question is have any of you readers been prescribed Amioderone???? What are the side effects you’ve had from it....... plus the good points of using it!!
I’ve researched it a little and the results are not pleasant!!!
