My AF is now persistent , punctuated by being woken early hours on other occasions with my "bad AF" which I'm calling palpitations and which debilitate me for a few hours. Can't drive or do much until it reverts to my "normal" AF (fast, irregular, 80-odd BPM - and I can cope with that!) I take my medication in the morning at around 8am: 10mg Bisoprolol, recently prescribed instead of 100mg Atenolol, and 125 mcg Digoxin. Warfarin taken at teatime. GP suggested on Monday that I try taking my morning meds at teatime to see if it stops the palpitations happening or lessens the occurrences. But neither he nor the pharmacist I asked this am could tell me the best logistical way of doing this to avoid having a long gap in medication at swap over - or am I worrying too much that I will be struck down with palpitations? Should I split the Bisoprolol into am 5mg, pm 5mg tmrw then go all day Fri to start 10mg on new med time at teatime? And when for Digoxin as tablets so tiny to split.? Any practical suggestions will be appreciated. Maybe it all sounds daft, like being paranoid, but Tessybear's posting on Anxiety last Friday 10th said it all for me too. I cried reading it and at Bob's kind, but realistic reassuring reply (I had bad week last week). I feel more at peace if that's possible .......till the next time anyway!
