amioderone, weaning
I am 8 weeks post op and have a aorta bio root and pig valve with a david 5 procedure.  4 week post op I had atrial flutter that had to be corrected with cardio vert 100 watt seconds.  I was on 400 mg amioderone for 4 days and then 200mg per day since.  
What is the proper weaning proceedure to stop the amioderone?

I was cardioverted from afib using Amiodarone.  I was then on 200 mg a day for around 2 months.  When my cardiologist agreed to discontinue the mediacation, I quit all at once.  One day was 200 mg the next day was nothing.  I remember a conversation with my cardio when he said I would just discontinue dosing all at once.  However, maybe this was because I was on the lowest effectiv does.  As always, discuss this with your cardiologist or electrophysiologist.  Best wishes.
