I saw my EP today and they informed me that the 30 day event monitor showed that I had 2 events that lasted less than 10 seconds. He said there were two options that he recommended. (1) Start on Propafenone (RYTHMOL) 150mg 3 times a day. He said it will not cure the AF but it might prevent it. He said if it does not or if the side effects are to bad we go to option number two. He also did an EKG and wants me back in a week for a second one. I guess he wants to check to see if there is any changes after I start on the medication.
(2) Option 2, is he will perform an Cardiac ablation and go in through both the left and right groin.
I will of course do as he has requested but was wondering if anyone here has taken this medication and did it help or harm them? I realize we all are different so results vary. Also is this normal to try medicine first?
