After a few weeks on imbruvica, I had very bad arrhythmia attacks a few nights in a row, and had to quit. I am now switching to calquence.
I have two drinks every night. I googled and learned that alcohol can trigger Afib. So, I wonder if drinking plus imbruvica triggered the arrhythmia. I have never had a heart problem, and an echocardium and cat scan shows everything is in good shape.
I would be interested in hearing from other who continued to drink. Did you experience new onset Afib with no prior Afib?
I think the other thing that might have been a problem is the .25 mg of amitryptiline I take every evening for sleep. Some research of mine indicates amtitryptiline can trigger Afib.
Anyone using nightly amitryptiline or something similar? If so did you get new onset Afib?
