My cardiologist has suggested this drug for my persistent a fib. I am hoping to discuss its effects with some one already on this medication

Much depends on the background of your a. fib, but if you do not have any outstanding other cardiac issues (as I do not), you probably do well on this. I have had no major side effects (unlike every other rate/rhythm drug that I took) so far. I have been on it nearly two years. I do think I am a bit more fatigued than ought to be, but much better than with the a.fib. I also notice a little bit trouble staying asleep at times. Unfortunately the drug seems not to be controlling all the aberrant a. fib, because I must occasionally supplement with metoprolol this past year. I have been told that the drug eventually fails for most folks over time as do most of them.
