Background info: Last July before I knew anything about AF I knew I had problems with what I thought were palpitations and was awaiting an appointment for ECG; I was not sleeping and was very tired so I bought some Q10 for my tiredness (and not for the fast heart rate) the very same day I noticed my heart rate was back to normal at night and I felt better and I carried on taking it and felt very good. When my appointment arrived I decided to stop taking Q10 as I was worried it may be masking an underlying problem - I have not taken it up again.
The hospital person I saw referred me for more ECGs and completely dismissed what I said about Q10. My conditions has got worse since. My appointment at the arrythmia clinic is next week (yes that long and only because I phoned them up and chased them and still not really spoken to anyone about this....) but I am now on Rivaroxaban, 2.5 Bisoprolol after I was admitted to A&E in December with constant 250HB as hospital had been so slow in giving my doctor results which I had to chase myself.
I self medicate magnesium. I am completely exhausted all the time, am out of breadth, major problems sleeping (have always had that but worse now). I feel I have aged 10 years in 6 months.
Been spending a lot of time consulting Dr Google and this forum has been very helpful. I have no real expectations of my clinic appointment (Whipps X) as so far they have been dismal and it feels that it is now DIY medicine; I now remember the really good effect Q10 had on my well being - but that was before I was on the anti coagulants and beta blokers.
Anyone any recent experience of Q10 (got reliable make) and any interaction with the drugs I am on. I have googled it and read what is available but it is fairly vague and I am interested in actual experiences. Thank you very much for any info you can give me.
