MULTAQ: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

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 “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 “I have intermittent AF and have been using this drug for about 5 years and have done very well on it. Some breakthroughs and I use Metropol to calm things done when necessary. I do not have heart disease as such, just an electrical problem.Recently, last couple of weeks,have noticed more frequent break throughs and it is taking a lot longer for the heart to settle down. I have done so well on Multag and hope I can work out the issues whatever they are.I am also on warfarin and home test which has been a godsend.AFib on line patient groups have been very helpful!”

For Atrial Fibrillation “I was put on Multaq after 1 episode of afib. Since then I have experienced nausea every night, loose stools several times a day and headache. My out of pocket from insurance last year was $20 for 3 months from express scripts. This month for a three month supply was $647.”

For Atrial Fibrillation “I’ve been doing pretty good on Multaq. Started using it in 2013, copay was $50, 2014 copay was $70. 2015 copay was $80. Now I received letter from Express Script telling me I will have to pay $200 in 2016. All prices are for 90 day supply. I can’t afford to pay that amount. Is there anything less costly I could take instead of Multaq?”

For Atrial Fibrillation “I have been taking multaq since 2009, I can no longer afford it. I am also a diabetic so I take insulin my prescriptions are quite expensive. I will take it until I run out then I will hope for the best. I can’t pay my living expenses and afford insurance copays and meds. So I will take care of my normal living expenses.”
