Hi. I want to stop taking this drug. I live in the UK and went to see my GP, she rang the cardiologist who said it's normal to feel ill on this drug and I should continue to take it after my successful cardioversion 6 weeks ago.
I convinced it the Amiodarone that's causing my fatigue and breathlessness
I also get lightheaded occasional.
This is my 3rd cardioversion, 1st lasted 8 years, 2nd 3 months, I felt really well after both, but this time I feel dreadful most of the time, the only difference from the two previous occasions is the Amiodarone.
To be frank I never wanted to go on the Amiodarone in the first place as I knew of its potential toxicity.
I've read it's ok to stop and I'm very tempted to do so.
Thanks, I just needed to get this off my chest.
