I had an ablation for a paroxsysmal AF, only two serious occurrences in 6 years. The op seemed effective, it was about 9 months ago, but the cardio said its only a success if there's no recurrence ever. Anyway,I was initially taking Apixaban, flecanaide and bisoprolol for about 4 months, then stopped all but Apixaban which I'm on for life I guess. After stopping the beta blocker my pulse is around 60 to 70. I'm not as fit as I used to be since the AF but do keep pretty active and am now skiing and more. My pulse used to be lower. Sometimes I get a sensation in my chest that used to be foreign to me. It's a sort of tightness and sensation of breathlessness although neither of these descriptions is accurate, it's just strange. I do occasionally feel a kind of anxiousness and palpitations but so far nothing comes of any of these symptoms. My question is, would it be wrong to take the low dosage bisoprolol I used take when this happens? To have a calming effect. I'll consult my AF nurse on this when I can, I'm abroad at the moment, soon but just wondering if anyone has experience of this. BTW I have been told I can take the flecanaide as a 'pill in the pocket' if AF comes on again but no mention of the Bisoprolol. Thanks in advance.
