I'm going to put this on here and on th eAF forum- I have very occasional AF as long as my potassium is good.Have tried 2 meds for BP in the last 6 weeks and potassium levels fell, even on a potassium sparing one ( Ramipril) and a diruectic with a potassium sparing addition med. Ended up= with 4 episodes of atrial Flutter- 3 bad enough for A and E, where Potassium seen to have had fallen. Fortunately no AF I have stopped all meds as looked carefully at the side effects of the main ones used and they all had risks of palpitations/ arrhythmias,/ AF.
Now walking loads ( difficult with my knees!!) and keeping put of dander zone most off the time.
Wondered if anyone else has had similar problem and whether you found any solutions. No flutter since stopping meds and none before taking them,
All info gratefully received. Ive been referred to EP cos of flutter and local opinion was have the flutter ablated I will see what the future brings but if I'm right its the meds that are the problem!
