My AF journey started apparently in or around 2010 at which time I was woken with chest an jaw pain with a pulse rate of around 140BPM and blood pressure that could not really be measured, the episode lasted around 2-3 hours. At this point in time I had been on Bisoporol for around 3-4 years for nothing more than hypertension. Episodes continued very infrequently for the next 3 years until being formally diagnosed with PAF in early 2013 at which time my Bisoporol was increased to 2.5mg twice a day together with 10mg Ramipril and 5mg Amlodipine both once daily and of course the obligatory anticoagulant firstly Warfarin which was replaced by Apixaban.
Since 2013 the frequency and length of AF episodes have increased at the same time my overall wellbeing was decreased, breathlessness, fatigue etc., I eventually got to see my consultant in November 2015 who thought a review of my various drugs was appropriate; Candesartan for BP, Apixaban anticoagulant and Adizem-SR 120mg twice a day. Within a few weeks of starting these new drugs my AF became almost persistent from the point of view I seemed to have more pronounced and lengthier periods of erratic heart activity with a pulse swinging from 30-180 BPM and nonsensical BP readings. Through careful self-monitoring I discovered that within 1 1/2 - 2 hours of taking the Adizem my heart would start it's erratic performance which lasted for periods of 6-8 hours at which time it would settle until my next dose of Adizem at which time the process would start all over again.
I stopped taking the Adizem 10 days ago and within 24-36 hours my pals has settled to a fairly steady 50 BPM and BP at around 130/70, I have had two minor AF episodes each of which lasted around 2 1/2 hours.
Sorry to have rambled on, however I am curious if anyone out there has had any similar experiences.
