What is Multaq?
Multaq is a prescription medicine given to adults who have had an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) caused by atrial fibrillation. Multaq is prescribed after the atrial fibrillation has been treated and the heart has returned to a normal rhythm, to reduce the risk of the irregular heartbeat returning.
If you’ve had an irregular heartbeat caused by atrial fibrillation, your doctor may prescribe Multaq to you as part of your ongoing treatment plan. The medication comes in tablet form and is usually swallowed twice a day. It helps to keep your heart beating in a steady, regular rhythm.
Multaq active ingredients
The active ingredient in Multaq is called dronedarone. It’s a medication called an antiarrhythmic agent that stabilizes your heartbeat.
Dronedarone works by blocking parts of the electrical circuits in the cells in your heart. By blocking these channels, dronedarone stops your heart from being able to contract as rapidly, promoting a return to a steady heartbeat.
