Cardiologist: Check with your cardiologist who knows the reason you're taking amiodarone. I believe it can be abruptly discontinued in most cases where another appropriate or effective antiarrythmic medication can be given. Since it can cause lung damage I'm sure your cardiologist will want the amiodarone discontinued.
