I'm fairly new to AF & waiting for a CV which should be carried out late September. Until then, I wanted to know what to do if I get an episode of high heart rate/ feeling unwell.
My GP said that if the heart doesn't calm down within a half hour, to go straight to A&E. He said not to take any additional meds. Is he being overcautious?
I ask this because when I first went to A&E (and they diagnosed AF) back in May, they gave me bisoprolol in 2.5mg doses until my heart rate had come down. I now take bisoprolol 2.5mg daily.
Many folk on the forum refer to PIP - Is an extra 2.5mg a safe emergency measure if I'm out and about walking, cycling or miles from a hospital?
