I'm 49 year old, otherwise healthy male with PAF. Longtime on/off endurance athlete, likely contributed to my afib. Still avid mountain biker - so spiking HR a lot when pedaling. Episodes have increased in frequency the last 3 years, duration stayed the same at around 3-4 hours. EP put me on 75mg twice daily, Afib has been knocked back a bit to mostly while sleeping, and episodes less than an hour. Overall, I've noticed zero side effects of the flec, it does keep my HR on the bike down a bit overall, and my fitness watch tells me my sleep is worse due to reduced HR variability, caused by the Flec. I am still getting crazy PACs, mostly when trying to sleep.
Wondering if others had minimal gains at first, and improvement by dosing up? I'm trying to evaluate the med route, before stepping up to ablate. Thanks!
