Does anyone have experience of using this over the counter sleeping aid and its potential effect, if any, on AF. I have no difficulty going to sleep, usually around 11 pm, but getting back to sleep after waking around 2 - 4am is not often possible. This happens most nights and means I get about 4-5 hours maximum sleep. Prescribed drugs are either vetoed by my cardiologist or else make me zombie like the next day or else have long term risks about withdrawal or addiction. This antihistamine drug seems to work very well with no "hangover". I am a 72 year old male with PAF (long gaps) and take warfarin, ramapril, adizem and bisoporol. I have had a minor heart attack 18 years ago and have 4 stents in my arteries. My GP recommended Nytol but my cardiologist said he did not know anything about it. He has 30 years experience.
On another matter, I have started taking bisoporol at night, with my GP's agreement. I think I feel better but instructions in the box are to take it in the morning. Am I running any risk?
All experience and suggestions gratefully recieved.
