I would suggest staying on the Multaq until you can let your physician know about the reaction. Rashes can occur in up to 5% of patients that start Multaq. This is not always a allergic reaction but can be a side effect. It will be up to your physician if he or she wants to continue your current treatment or start a new treatment. If you need further assistance feel free to ask more questions. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.
