Yes: All meds have potential side effects. A few of the side effects that Cordarone (amiodarone) can cause include causing the thyroid to be overactive or underactive. It can also lead to pulmonary fibrosis, a potentially serious lung disease that can lead to permanent scarring of the lung. Cordarone (amiodarone) can cause severe slowing of the heart rate and rhythm, and it can also cause constipation.
