About Multaq

Not actual patients.

What is Multaq?

MULTAQ is a medication for patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) that can help keep the heart beating in regular, steady rhythm.

If you’ve been prescribed MULTAQ, it’s because your doctor believes it can have an important role keeping your heart in normal rhythm for longer.

How effective is Multaq?

People taking MULTAQ had an average of 116 days in a row with a normal heart rhythm, more than twice as many than those taking placebo.

A pill with a ribbon
MULTAQ is the only prescription medicine of its kind proven to help lower your chance of going into the hospital for AFib.

The American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Rhythm Society recommend MULTAQ and medicines like it to help maintain normal heart rhythm.

Your doctor is your best source for determining which medicines are right for you.

Sinus rhythm is when your heart is pumping blood and at a "normal" rate. When it is not,you may have AFib. Paroxysmal AFib is an episode that lasts less than a week. You might feel it for a few minutes, or a few days. Persistent AFib is an episode that lasts more than a week, but less than a year. Do not take MULTAQ if you have a type of AFib called permanent AFib.
