Thank all of you for your responses.. My afib is peristant afib. Doctor did cardioversion which didn't work.then wanted to put me in hospital to load Tikosyn. I went into sinus rythym after first dose. Just been less than 2 weeks,still in rythym. I wasn't told it would quit working after while. I'm 78 and reading about possible side effects is scary

Terrific that Tikosyn worked for you. I've taken it for 4 years without side effects. I was tired for the first few months of that and Diltiazem, but adjusted. I'm 85 now. In my hospital, it's the drug of choice for afib.
