My suspected PAF diagnosis has just been confirmed following a stint in hospital at the weekend during which the ECGs showed clear AF. I have been told to take bisoprolol, Zarelto daily plus Flecainide as a pill in pocket strategy. What I am not clear on is whether I should go to A&E during an attack or sit it out at home. My episodes usually last around 12 hours. Last weekend was the first time I tried A&E. They were amazing, admitted me straight away. Gave me 15mg of Metroprolol IV and bisoprolol 2.5 and monitored my pulse until eventually it switched from 160bpm to 65 after 12 hours. I find the whole thing rather terrifying and there seems very little information on what to do during an attack so any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you.
