Tony on Sep, 2, 2014:
I am 35 years old and have never had any heart conditions. After taking axiron for 6 months I have developed Atrial Fibirlations. I have been off of axiron for 3 months now and I have on average 5 to 10 episodes a day with atrial fibrilations. I have not been able to exercise or do any physician activities for 3 months now cause of this. Only other thing I was taking was a multi-vitamin that I have taken for well over 5 years.
