In brief: Pacerone (amiodarone)

Pacerone (amiodarone) lasts a long time in the body 1/2 out in ~2 weeks and the other 1/2 over the next several months as it is stored in your fat cells.
When the drug is stopped the electrical effects continue for a period of time. Many md's decrease the dose over time to find the lowest dose that is effective for the abnormal heart rhythm to reduce potential side effects.
