Thank you so much for sharing your story!! I'm so sorry about your situation, hope you're doing well and healing. I don't smoke or drink but have diabetes. Still haven't gone for EP study, have to make an appointment. Did you have a defibrillator and pacemaker?
You said it shocked you back into rhythm which sounds like a defibrillator. Nowadays I think they're combined. I have been very very concerned (scared of death) about being on the Amiodarone, it frightens me and I have been on it for a year. I saw it has a black box warning and people warn against using it, that it is very toxic. I thought I would be taken off of it but then I was afraid to, that my heart would be out of rhythm and have vt or something.

Yes i had a combination pacemaker difibulator but not any longer since my Heart Transplant and am doing well now. But on the Amiodrione yes it was toxic and i took it for about 9 years but it was when i needed the iv type that caused me the most problems. When my old heart got real bad i was in the hospital and on an iv version. That was when it became toxic to me.
