    I have rapid atrail and for the last couple years I've taken " pacerone 200 mg " once a day.
    I am also getting ready to follow up with Dr. lever this thurs. at the cleveland clinic.
    Do you have atrail fib. too and if so how are you being treated, what meds.?

      yes, I do. I was started on verapamil in mid-February. The doseage has increased...actually, a week ago it was increased to 360 mg. He took me off of the atenolol. If I go into afib again, I believe the plan is to add an antiarrythimic...I think he mentinoed sotolol

            Yes & no
            but I have rapid atrail fib. so that may make my case a little different, plus other factors. The pacerone worked for me up until the last few months, so I went for about 3 years without problems. That's why I'm seeing docter lever. The doc's never tried me on any other meds yet.
