I was just released from the hospital last week after Tikosyn monitoring. It has not proven sucessful for me and I am experiencing arrythmias about every other day. I have another appointment with the doctor next week. I have been advised to remain on the Tikosyn despite it's ineffectiveness until further options are discussed.
I have also tried Fleconide and Rhythmol with no results. I had an ablation last February and am told that a second ablation is not uncommon. I live in the Houston area famous for its heart specialists.
You may have learned that atrial fibrillation is a condition that does not lend itself to easy cures in all people although for some it does. There's no reason to it that I'm aware of.
