    I only have to take 2,5mg of Bisoprolol and 100mg of CardioAspirin per day for my AFIB, but there have been a few days that I forgot if I had taken them!

  • Arrhythmias and exercise

    Say you have one of these "harmless" arrhythmias, should you avoid aerobic exercise?  I mean, if you engage in vigorous exercise that raises your heart rate and BP, isn't that just asking for serious trouble?  Or is it supposed to hold harmless even then?
