What are the three major things to look for and the cons of taking Amiodarone
Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic drug that is mostly used for very severe types of arrhythmias. It is given intravenously or orally, and must be started always in a hospital setting. Some of the most important side-effects are liver toxicity, worsening of the arrhythmia (paradoxically, but can happen, especially if not administered properly), and disturbances in lung function, whereas numerous local side effects can develop as well. Although it is an effective drug, careful consideration is required with a healthcare professional.
