From this study (3 years ago):
I have been on Cardura (doxazosin mesylate 6Mg) for close to 10 years. Following bypass surgery Amiodarone 200Mg was added by my cardiologist. Nausea and occasional vomiting began. The cardiologist then changed me from amiodarone to Multaq which created increased nausea, increased vomiting and sometimes severe dizziness . He return me to amiodarone. Presemtly I often almost daily have a small stomach pain and sometime a mild but alarming touch of dizziness.
