Trial and error ???
I have had my Dfib/PM installed since July 10 2007 at first I was able to do some things cleaning moving light items occasionally bend over to pick things up. Aprox a month ago i was washing my truck at a coin car wash being in a slight hurry to beat the clock my defib went off 3 times. They put me on Amiodarone(pacerone) 600 mg a day my heart arithmea now gets so bad that I have to drink water to calm my self down then it went off 5 times at the ER a couple of weeks later the defib was check found to be good however was not programed for a pulse under 60 (from what i was told) they also ran an IV of the pacerone aprox 1440 mg and said to cotinue what I had been taken. Feeling ok I started working around the house nothing heavy defib went off again so now they added mexiletine 150mg 3x a day along with everything else I'm taking. 1 has anyone run into this or is this normal 2 is it common to do the take the med and wait and see attiude
