I'm in persistent AF since June of this year....and have finally agreed to all recommended meds. Since taking amiodarone beginning just over three weeks ago, my heart rate became nicely regular, but the rate went from 110 or so to 130-135....consistently all day and all night. Bisoporol apparently is not working, nor has the former metoprolol. I don't feel it during the day, but each morning I wake up I get very concerned that this just can't keep continuing....it has got to be doing damage. Can anyone help me understand this? Is this normal; can I continue like this until the EP schedules my appt?
Any advice, assurances will be very helpful. Thank you.
