Anti arrhythmic medication
I have a long standing history of atrial fibrillation and had an ablation 5 years ago. Did well with very few a fib breakthrough but had low pulse. ( mid 40's). Was on Eliquis but no need for antiarrynmics . In October this year I had a watchman insertion with the goal of getting off Elizuis. Well Atrial fib went crazy and I was very symptomatic. Bradycardia got worse. Low 30's and November 15 I recieved a dual lead PM. Now I am metropolol and Tikosyn. I know it is early days but in the first 2-3 weeks I did have break through atrial fib which was not that symptomatic. For the past week I would say that I have no atrial fib that I can detect . I am pacing at 93% and my baseling heartrate is in the 60s. Feeling pretty good now. I am nervous about the Tikosyn and it is difficult to remember to take it on schedule. Is it unrealistic to think that at some point I may be able to come off it?
