Good Morning! My doctor wants me to take an anti arrhythmic. I can't decide the best one for me. I want one with the least amount of side effects and the one safest to take for the duration. I'm 63.

      I take the antiarrythmic flecainide. I was terrified to take it and waited over a year. Finally my afib became so frequent that I had to take it. Took a few days to build up in my system. But since then my heart has been perfect! No afib, nothing not even as much as a skip! I would have started it earlier had I known how well it worked. I have no side effects whatsoever.

      I hear you I'm 58. Decided to look into my symptoms more & see what else is goin on b4 I took the dangerous plunge into an arrhythmia drug. I'm so glad I stuck it out. They can be very dangerous and they can take your whole body off course if the drug or the dosage isn't perfect for you.

        @Wondercell what did you do as an alternative to an anti-arrhythmia drug?
