Hi everyone. Just had my 3rd fast AF event in 8weeks requiring chemical cardioversion with fleicanide IV. I never know how long to leave my very irregular and fast heart beat before I go to A/E .
I am now home and resting. The last event came on while I was swimming which is unusual for me as all my other attacks have been whilst at rest.
My question is I have now been discharged from hospital with a 300mg dose of propafenone to take if I go back into fast AF to try and stop a hospital admission. Has anyone used this medication like 'A pill in the pocket' before. I know fleicanide can be used but not heard of this drug before nor had the staff on the discharge ward I was on. It was a cardiologist who suggested it. I am on Bisoprolol and warfarin as well as Bp medications.
I am scheduled for an ablation on the 9th December. Prior to this admission I was undecided about going ahead with it after reading some of the negative comments about ablation. I am now determined to go ahead with it and put my trust in my EP.
