Hi, Ive been on Bisoloprolol 2.5mg for my AF for 6mths but due to side effects my gp has now took me off these & has given me Digoxin 125mg to take instead. I'm initially trying them for 2wks then I go back to see her.
?She informed me this medication does not work like Bisoloprolol & wont stop me going into AF just will slow my heart rate down.
?Ive had a look on the internet about this medication & seems more doom & gloom than a help for me. What ive read states this should be used more or less as a last option if nothing else works which concerns me to be honest. I don't have persistant AF, Mainly after food & at times waking me at night (but the Bisoloprolol stopped all this,& my AF was absolute minimal, but I had a side effect of my skin was feeling badly sunburned so I had to come off this).I understand the link between my AF & my vagal nerve & a change in diet habits has also helped with this.
?Has anyone ever had Digoxin, & please what are your thoughts/experiences with this?
?I'm a 42yr old male, eat healthy,relatively fit. I was very confident with my previous medication & was starting to feel my old self (apart from the skin side effects), but now feel ive took 10 steps backwards, or am reading the information incorrectly & this medication is just as good? My thoughts are, if unlike the Bisoloprolol the Digoxin doesn't prevent AF,then am I at more risk of future PERSISTANT AF?
?Just very confused at the moment,any help or advice is really appreciated thankyou.
