At our Exeter AF get-together in Exeter a few weeks ago we discovered that out of the 19 people who attended, 3 of us had had our thyroids damaged due to taking the drug Amiodarone/Cordarone. We now have to take other pills for life to rectify this. That's a high percentage isn't it?
I know that for myself and another member it did nothing to help our AF either, I didn't ask the the third person whether it had helped them or not.
I'm wondering how many others out there have had health problems caused by this drug?
I'm also beginning to give thought as to how it can still be allowed to be prescribed?
How many others are there out there, still undiagnosed with thyroid damage after taking Amiodarone/Cordarone, who like me thought the dreadful tiredness they experienced was caused by their AF?
What are your thoughts please?
