Multaq Information

Multaq (Generic name: dronedarone) was approved in July of 2009 for the treatment of patients who experienced an abnormal heart rhythm like atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter but currently have a more regular heart rhythm or will return to a more regular rhythm with medical treatment. Dronedarone is a derivative of the effective antiarrhythmic drug amiodarone, but does not contain the idodine atoms that make amiodarone toxic. Multaq comes in 400mg tablets designed to be taken twice daily (morning and evening) with meals. It can be used safely by people who have high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.

Multaq Side Effects:

The most common Multaq side effects are diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, skin infections, slow heart rate and weakness and lack of energy.
