Abstract

Amiodarone causes many side effects involving all organ systems. Although most of the side effects are mild and do not limit the use of the drug, there are several that are serious. Since many of these toxic reactions develop only after a prolonged period of therapy, careful follow-up on a regular basis is essential.
