My pharmacist kindly spared me some time yesterday to discuss a new drug that I have been prescribed Ivabradine.
I have never heard of this drug and was keen to learn some more about it given my reaction to other drugs in the past. It seems that it does have side effects like most medicines but they should be manageable and anything that slows my hear rate from 108 resting is fine by me.
My pharmacist did advise me that Amiodarone has just been "down graded" and will now only be prescribed if nothing else works which was music to my ears. I do hope that this is the case. I know that some people have had no reaction to it but it seems to have more negative reactions than positive.
