Sunday, I had a very sypmtomatic episode of AF and ended up going to the ER. I have been wanting to go back on meds because of some recent episodes of AF, but my EP wanted to see what was going on before starting any meds. He had orderd an event monitor but I never received it. I had called his office more than once with no results.I had only been on aspirin 325mg daily and was getting a little nervous about my stroke risk. (RA also increases risk for stroke and heart attack.) When I arrived at the ER my HR was 160 and BP was 176/104. (I have never had hypertension.) I was given cardizem IV and then started on a cardizem drip. I converted within a couple of hours and BP normalized, but I was kept overnight for monitoring. I was discharged home on flecainide 50 mg twice a day, atenolol 25 mg once a day, and xarelto 25mg daily. I hate taking meds, but I feel safer and rest easier. I had a lot of input in which meds I would take. I have not had any further episodes. I do not see another ablation anywhere in the near future. I just hope things stay stable for awhile. AF really is an ugly beast!
