Used it yrs ago when AF first diagnosed. Seemed fine for yrs, but when AF came hard, docs switched me to Bisoprolol, a beta blocker. Now on Sotalol, and not working either.
The first try with Digoxin was not pleasant. Anxiety attacks and shortness of breath. After going back into AFIB 7 months after the first time, they put me back on it. This time everything seems to be fine. I am approaching this episode more relaxed and accepting. I believe the first time on Digoxin that I was overly sensitive to the effects on my body and probably more was anxiety than anything else.

Seems to have reduced the number of episodes of arrhythmias that I was having and they are less severe.
