I am MIGHTILY IMPRESSED: 5"9 205lbs 5% body fat...do you COMPETE?


Anyhoo,
Beta blockers are the proper class of drugs to treat A-fib. Why not tell your doctor you want to try 50 mg. atenolol once a day and see if they control the bouts better than the Toprol XL (God, does every doctor in America chooose this non-generic lately...Astra Zeneca must be very generous indeed!)

Since your bouts are relatively infrequent, although no less scary, I doubt that they will want to go the next route which is an ablation procedure. But if things get worse, that might be your answer.

But for now, try to find a beta blocker that suits you...the choice is huge WITH MANY CHEAP GENERICS
