I have been getting more and more tired of the side effects of my current drug therapy. I have Afib and HOCUM, hyper-tropic obstructive cardiomyopathy. The Cardiologist and Internist seemed to think I should be tested for Sleep Apnea. What a disaster. The sleep center had an overbearing chemical smell due to being in the basement of a old motel and trying to cover the mold damage. the AC was weak and the place was 78 degrees F and too humid. They glued sensors all over my head and body and insisted I wear a shirt. After soaking the bed in 45 minutes and getting no response from calling out I removed the sensors and the attendant showed up in time for me to be putting on my pants to leave. Next they tried a home monitor. It found I woke up 4 times that night. I could have told them that if they asked. I'm 61 and get up to pee a couple times every night. After this experience I am led to believe Sleep Apnea is a way to get insurance money for a made up syndrome. I still don't know what getting up to pee has to do with A fib. I decided to cut down on one of the drugs I take and have more energy and out of A fib. When I cut down the Sotolol I had no need for caffeine to get through the day.
Any thoughtsout there on how to reduce sid effects of metropolol, sotolol, and lisinopril.
