Update to when amiodarone fails

Hi everyone...Ok they added mexiletine to Bobs amiodarone and it made him deathly sick, woosy, confused. So that has been stopped. Friday he is going to have a doppler echo to see if he is a candidate for the third lead on his ICD. As of now he is on 400mg of amio a day and no more shocks, knock wood, but we don't know how long he can continue the 400 mg daily, amio is toxic in some people. Thats where we are at right now. He is feeling better, mexiletine did a number on him....Marilu

As for my pacemaker (almost 7 years old) I like to think of it in the terms of the old Timex commercial - takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
