I'm 53, had my first episode 7 years ago. Cardiologist put me on Disopyramide, which was effective until recently--2 fainting episodes in the last 3 months. Same Cardiologist just put me on Propafenone, while the arrhythmia specialist HE referred me to included Diltiazem into the mix. The drugs are not keeping me completely free from bouts of A-Fib, but I find that by re-positioning myself, the A-Fib doesn't last very long. If I lay on my left side, instant A-Fib. I'm thinking of asking the Cardiologist for a different med, but I don't know (and I'm asking you guys) if the med is expected to keep you 100% A-Fib free (?). If go into it, but get out a few minutes later, is that what you live with? I fully expect that I will end up getting the ablation, but want to exhaust the med possibilities first. What meds have worked the best for you guys? A Million Thanks!!!!
