I have no other health issues, have a healthy heart (CHAD score is 0), BP that is nice and low (100/60
), don't smoke, drink (anymore - it's big trigger), etc etc. After an ablation for PVCs, I developed a-fib. I have a wonderful (and high profile) cardiologist in Boston (who performed the ablation). He put me on flecainide (worked up to 75mg/day) and 50mg/day metoprolol. It worked at first - not a blip.
