Amiodarobe is a very effective anti arrhythmic drug, but unfortunately has lots of side effects when used for long term (years).
It can affect the lungs, thyroid, liver, eyes and skin. Usually twice a year blood tests and yearly chest x ray can detect these side effects before they become clinically manifest. Most importantly, almost all the side effects disappear once the medication is stopped.
