DRONEDARONE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

Multaq (dronedarone) for Atrial Fibrillation: “I had a ablation after 3 months my electrophysiologist took me off of Multaq. After 10 days started having constant palpitations. Got back on multaq. I guess I needed a ablation and multaq to stay in normal sinus rhythm.”

For Atrial Fibrillation: “Have been taking dronedarone for 7 years. No problems of any kind and my AF was initially reduced to two episodes of several hours in the each first few years and now have not had any AF for 3 years. No discernible side effects whatsoever. Literally a life saver.”

Multaq (dronedarone) for Atrial Fibrillation: “I have had afib since I was 9, it lasted until I was 27, then it just went away for 29 years, a year ago it returned, episodes last 6-12 hour episodes, 2-3 monthly, I was on Multaq 500 mg 2 times a day for 6 months, with no change at all, and at the price of $600 a month I finally asked my cardiologist if we could stop it, He agreed, been 6 months without, still get the afib 2-3 times a month.”

For Atrial Fibrillation: “Prescribed Multaq for a fib—gained ten pounds in six days, became breathless and totally fatigued. Discontinued Multaq after six days and lost six pounds in twelve hours, regained breath and no longer fatigued. Multaq resulted in CHF!!! The cure was worse than the disease.”

For Atrial Fibrillation: “Have had paroxysmal Afib since 1978. Digoxin controlled my Afib reasonable successfully until summer of 2012 when the frequency and duration of my Afib occurrences increased to an event every two or three months. Then in May 2013, I almost passed out during an Afib episode. Switched to MULTAQ 400mg twice daily after being admitted to the hospital and my Afib has been under control ever since. I notice some missed beats occasionally, but nothing like the random palpitations I had during Afib. MULTAQ is working for me.”

For Atrial Fibrillation: “I was given this drug in 2009 in a effort to control AFib. I was on it one month and it did nothing to help the AFib. Following a cardiac ablation in 2015, I developed random, but frequent PAC (premature atrial contraction)/PVC (Premature ventricular complex) activity. My EP suggested the use of this drug to eliminate these events. I have been on the drug for approximately 3 weeks, initially on 200MG 2 times per day. Following about 10 days, and no improvement the dosage was increased to 400MG 2 times per day. The events continue at about the same frequency and still random, however the intensity of the events seems to be lessened.”
