Had a stress test to induce my parox a-fib, did not happen, however the next day I had it for several hours. I was prescribed diltiazem 120mg 2x. I started the meds in Oct, and was am doing o.k., but early Saturday after midnight I felt it coming on at 3:30 in the morning. I had fallen asleep on the couch and had it for at least 5-6 hrs. I do daily walking and work, no issues. My next apt is at the end of January.
My question is does anyone have breakthrus once in awhile while on this med. I guess it's to early to tell. I also am on eliquis 2.5mg 2x.
I had made a post a while back on my situation. I had cryoablation for my a-fib and did quite well. My parox a-fib returned 5 yrs & 2 mos later etc,......................
Appreciate any feed back.
