StopAfib.org applauds FDA approval of Multaq (dronedarone), a safer option to amiodarone for atrial fibrillation patient

We hear from so many afib patients every day about the trials, tribulations, and fears regarding being on amiodarone, or their refusal to take it. Since the FDA approved Multaq® (dronedarone) recently, the most frequent question I’ve fielded has been “When will Multaq® be available?” That happened this week, and the excitement they have shared with us has been palpable.

So, on behalf of the atrial fibrillation patient community, StopAfib.org felt it was appropriate to thank and applaud the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for providing a safer option for those with atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. Dronedarone is the first new anti-arrhythmic drug approved in years for afib. There are now more options for fighting that afib beast. Read more:

Just curious, I started Mustaq yesterday and am wondering the timeline of when I can expect to have enough of the drug in me to stop my afibs.  6 days ago I got off sotolol and man did I have some afibs for 5 days, almost constant.  I am real hopeful this will do the trick.  I had two heart ablations and so far all drugs haven't worked.  I have to get an ekg on Tuesday to make sure things are going ok.  Just looking for information, thanks,  dan@variantx.com  Dan
