Yes, Becki, I know about that procedure. I had a consult at Eisenhower in Palm Springs with Dr Matruka. I was considering going there for a mini-maze ablation procedure. I'm still contemplating it. Are you still taking Multaq? My Dr here gave me a prescription for it yesterday. I'm a little leery of it as I know it's related to amiodarone.
Yes, Amiodarone is some nasty stuff in my opion. It works, but after reading all the ill effects with this drug I chose to stop taking it after 9 months. I was tired of having to be monitored on it, too. Ally
Dronedarone is supposed to be related but without the side-effects of Amiodarone. I'm doing pretty well without taking anything so I don't know if I want to take a chance on it. I'm just so tired of dealing with even occasional bouts of a-fib. What I'd really like is a "pill in a pocket" that I could take when I go into a-fib to help get me out of it. Any suggestions?
