I am 56 and I have AF, and have recently had a cardioversion which did not work. My heartrate is not fast but slow to normal. I have been down the warfarin route whilst waiting for my cardioversion but I am now on 75mg Aspirin daily. I am not symptomatic apart from a few dizzy spels which is how they discovered my AF but now my doctor wants me to take Beta Blockers. I know they slow the heart down and am worried about it becoming too slow and me passing out all the time as I drive quite a lot. I also suffer with borderline underactive thyroid and am on a really low dose of thyroxin to control this.
Has anyone else taken beta blockers with a slow heartrate, and itf so did it help?
