What is Multaq used for?
Multaq is used to treat people who currently have a normal heart rhythm but have had atrial fibrillation (AFib) in the past. Atrial fibrillation is a type of heart rhythym disorder, which causes your heart to beat very quickly, and your heart’s upper and lower chambers not to work together properly. This medication lowers the risk of hospitalization in these people.
You can buy Multaq (Dronedarone) online at My Drug Center. We currently do not have the Multaq generic available for purchase.
How does Multaq work?
Multaq contains the active ingredient Dronedarone, and belongs to the class of drugs known as anti-arrhythmics. When taken as prescribed, the Dronedarone dosage in the medication blocks channels in your muscle cells so the charged particles of potassium cannot move in and out freely. This flow of charged particles in and out of the muscle cells is what causes excessive electrical activity that can lead to atrial fibrillation and a rapid heart rate. As a result, Multaq reduces the potassium flow through the channels, and your heart rate then settles down.
Before taking Multaq, read all the instructions and paper work that given to you by your pharmacist. Take your Multaq dosage orally once a day. Make sure you take it at the same time each day to create a routine for yourself and to ensure an even spread of the Dronedarone dosage in your system. This medication should be taken on a regular basis to have optimal results. Take Multaq exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not change or increase your dose.
Multaq may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Be sure to discuss other medical conditions, known allergies, and list any over-the-counter or prescription medications, and herbal products you are currently taking.
