I was on meds for it for almost 2 yrs when the meds quit working and they did an ablation. That is were they go in throughthe goin and burn the circuits that are misfiring causing the Afib. Made it through the 6 month check up with a clean bill of health no more meds and no more problems it feels so good just incredibly out of shape and have to loose 45 pounds per the DR

Been taking all the meds to go with A-Fib for 11 years. They say sleep apnea caused my heart to enlarge, and when they were doing the sleep study that found my heart racing I wasn't breathing for up to 3 mins.

Anyway The apnea sped my heart rate up above 300 bpm, and when they slowed it down it flipped into A-fib and has been ever since. They tried shocking and other stuff nothing has worked. Maybe one day they will give me a pacemaker. I know this digoxin has to be killing me even if it is slowly.

Chad, wolfer is right about the sleep apnea connection. If your doctor hasnt ordered a sleep test, then you should suggest it. Do you snore or wake yourself up with a gasp or snort?
