hi everyone, I'm 61, usually in great health, normal blood pressure, don't smoke, don't drink, slim, sporty. Out the blue diagnosed with PAF. Cardiologist has prescribed flecaine and digoxin at low dose. But want to see if I can manage without - learn the triggers, etc. Any experience out there on one this? I don't want to get caught into drugs which, long term may well do more harm than good! They also only mask, not cure. But maybe I'm being scared for no good reason. Must say that I expected to feel well between episodes (tend to be weekly for about 3-4 hours and always late in the evening, so tiredness definitely one trigger) but I don't. Really just never myself anymore. Maybe taking the medication for, say, three months might just give my heart time to steady itself out of this. Apparently that can sometimes happen. Just don't know. All so new to me I'm very confused. Any tips/advice gratefully received. Thanks everyone.
