Good evening. Please can anyone advise me please.?
Successful cardioinvertion 2 days ago (my 3rd, 1st lasted 8 years, 2nd 8 weeks)
I did get a breathless when in AF and after my 2nd cardioinvertion the breathlessness went away.
The problem I have is although I'm still in normal synus rhythm after my 3rd cardioinvertion 2 days ago I am very breathless.
Now I'm a little worried, but I'm beginning to suspect the medication I'm taking.
You see prior to the recent cardioinvertion I was on 10mg Bisoprolol and 200mg Amiodarone plus Apixaban.
The cardiologist who did the cardioinvertion said stay on the same medication until I'm seen in clinic in 6 weeks time, but I'm convinced that now I'm in NSR these doses of both Bisoprolol and Amiodarone are too high and causing the breathlessness.
As well as breathlessness I'm a little unsteady on my feet too.
To wait 6 weeks till cardiology clinic seems too long to be on these high dosages.
What is your views?
