Amiodarone and Severe Side Effects
If you develop chest pain, start coughing up blood, or experience other severe side effects while taking amiodarone (Cordarone®, Pacerone®, Nexterone®), contact your healthcare provider for immediate medical treatment. Clinical trials have shown that this medication can cause dangerous and even life-threatening problems.
In most cases, however, side effects tend to be minor and easy to treat. If you are taking amiodarone and experience anything that "just does not seem right," let your healthcare provider know right away.
