Thank you everyone for letting me know what side effects if any you had on Apixoban. As said I have only just started Apixoban (two weeks in) and apart from slight dizziness now and again I seem to be fine. I have been constantly on the look out for any side effects but I seem to be calming down now thanks to you!
My next question is to do with any heart rate reducing medication. when in AF which is paroxysmal, my heart rate is alarmingly fast. 188 during the last episode. Currently I am on no meds for this, just the Apixoban.
With a low rest heart rate which would be the best medication for me? My heart rate at night is in the 50s
Is it dangerous to have a fast heart rate during an AF episode and not take medication to bring it down?
thank you again for your replies. It has made such a difference to someone who has never taken medication for anything!
All the best
