I was diagnosed with paroxysmal a few months ago and Doc has me on Metoporol 25 mg twice a day and a daily aspirin. A previous Doc had me on Digoxin and Flecannaide and those 2 caused me lots of problems so went for a second opinion and I am doing much better now. I was taking Lisinopril 25 mg twice a day along with the Digoxin and flecannaide and blood pressure would spike almost every night. Now the Metoporol is working so well that I am not even taking the Lisinopril. I am scheduled for a sleep study to check for sleep apnea as a possible cause of my A Fib. Just curious how many people believe that rate control only is the best care for A Fib and is this something that I will have to take for the rest of my life. I am a very active female age 65 and never even knew I had A Fib until I had food poisoning one night and was up all night vomiting and diaherra and pulse rate was 165 so wound up in emergency room. Was referred to Cardiologist and after taking all these drugs I wonder if they have helped or made things worse.
