Amiodarone Side Effect Lawsuits
Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic drug designed to regulate the heartbeats of patients suffering from life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias such as ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.

Dangerous Complications Linked to Amiodarone
Amiodarone regulates the heartbeat by altering the heart’s electrical activity. While these electrical impulses can help control a patient’s heartbeat, they can also cause a variety of adverse complications throughout the rest of the body. Amiodarone has been linked to serious and potentially fatal side effects, including:
- Pulmonary fibrosis
- Visual impairment or blindness
- Liver failure
- Thyroid failure
- Worsened arrhythmia
If you experienced any of these complications while taking amiodarone, you may be facing additional health problems and steep medical expenses.
