Amiodarone and Blindness

My Father had heart surgery about 1 year ago. After his surgery he was placed on Amiodarone for an arrhythmia.

About a month later his arrhythmia was controlled but he said it was like a roller shade was being pulled down over one eye. Within a week he started to have the same thing in the other eye. In two more weeks he could only make out shadows.

He is now almost completely blind and we attibute this to Amiodarone. He of course got off of it right away but it has a very long half life so that it stays in your system for a long time.

Warn people about this drug. It has many very dangerous side effects.

I took amio for 4 years and had several problems with not knowing that was the cause. I am having hypothirodism and it s been 10 years after amio, I hate that medication, but still do not know what to tell you to clear the blood, you should check his liver, kidneys, corneas, skin, etc. amio is something weird it almost kills people but it may also help others, otherwise i do not know why is it still available.

I am 68 years old and have been suffering from advance stage sick sinus syndrome with arrhythmia problems. I had a pace maker put in 2 months ago, but still suffer from atrial fib. My doctor has tried several meds to treat my arrhythmia. The latest, being pacerone. I have been taking the meds for 7 days, and on the 7th day I developed pain in my chest and breathing problems. My doctor says it is not the pacerone, but I know that it is. I stopped taking it, but still have tightness and some breathing problems. I have decided to see another doctor to control the arrhythmias without using meds, when I happen to see this forum on line. I sure hope I don't develope anymore problems from this stuff.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
