Amiodarone causing constant dizziness?
Merry Christmas everyone.
I had my ICD installed a year ago and was fine up until I received a shock in October this year. I was immediately put on Amiodarone and have never felt the same since. I constantly have low blood pressure and feel light headed / dizzy. I take my meds last thing at night before bed and wake up to still feel dizzy. I was on Losartan 50mg which was cut to 25mg and was then stopped. Nothing changed. I was on Eplerenone 25mg which was stopped and nothing changed. I was on Carvedilol 25mg twice a day, cut to 12.5mg then cut to 6.25mg and nothing has changed.
The only meds I am currently taking are Amiodarone 200mg once a day and Carvedilol 6.25mg twice a day. I still feel dizzy, light headed and have very low blood pressure. I took it this morning before any meds and it was 89/53 with heart rate of 55bpm.
I am calling my doctor every three days begging him to help me because I feel like I am going to faint at any time. They are adamant that they want to keep me on Amiodarone which I believe is the drug that started all of this. I have never felt like this before in my life, no matter what meds I were on.
The only other meds I take are a Fostair 100/6 Inhaler for my asthma but I didn't think that would be causing me to feel dizzy.
Can anyone offer me some advice as to where to go from here? Thank you.
