    Meds are not easy for many of us,others can take them without any side effects. I had an awful time 5 yrs of bad side effects. I'm now off the beta blocker,but I'm still taking rampril. 

       Please google drjohnm. I got such comfort from his article. The. Ewes the research is very enlightening....change the lifestyle,lose weight,more exercise,trey sleep apnea. However,not all AF is caused by  being overweight etc.   

    Simon from Adelaide posted this research too. I will see if I can find the link and I will get back to you. There is a lot of support on here for you

      I've sent 2 replies with the name of the article,but it wouldn't send. I'll try again and maybe space out the letters. So it's legacy pl and then throws the gauntlet . Hope this goes the article ends with American physicians.

    Hi, how are you now? What did your GP say? I had to change from bisoprolol to Ivabradine as I couldn't sleep and had such vivid dreams. Feel loads better now.

      I had the same problem. My Gps and the cardio doc would not accept that the meds were creating such bad side effects! I've struggled for 5 years! Now I'm off the biso,then the atenlol . The difference is amazing! The side effects all gone. I'm so angry at the years wasted. Don't let them fob you off.dont let it happen to you. I still have AF and take rampril.....hopefully soon to go....and I'm losing weight! 

         Just be careful though,because I have no heart problem or valve issues...Lone  but persistent AF.
