Since getting afib and trying do deal with lots of worry, anxiety and the dreadful medications I took before having my ablation 2 months ago, I am having difficult time sleeping. I'm sure I have depression with all the emotional upheaval from the afib which may be contributing to the waking up in middle of every night. The antidepressants all can cause heart issues so they are out of question.......what do you all use to get a full night sleep ???? I have been taking klonipin, not crazy bout it only gives me 6 hour sleep at best and not great drug to be on long term nor is any. Adivan gives me less sleep and a rebound anxiety next morning. I get to sleep no problem but wake up 3 hours later and can't get back to sleep.......start having afib thoughts and anxiety if I lie there too long without taking something! Anybody out there having trouble sleeping too?
