When I was diagnosed with atrial flutter in February of 2016, my GP prescribed Metoprolol 25 mg with the words that it did three things: address the heart rate, the heart rhythm, and the blood pressure. At the time, I was also taking for blood pressure 25 mg Hydrochlorothiazide and Ramipril 5 mg, but he told me to drop the Hydrochlorothiazide as it wasn't agreeing with my body. Rivaroxaban 20 mg as anticoagulant was added.
There was no discussion with my GP of rate control or rhythm control, and at that time, I did not know the difference, so I thought I was on both with Metoprolol. Subsequently, I have failed to find literature promoting Metoprolol for rhythm control.
Has anyone had the experience of using Metoprolol as rhythm control by going back into sinus rhythm?
