I'm on Multaq for a little over a year now. I take Xarelto 20mg, and Bystolic 2.5mg. Ever since I had my AFIB incident and started on Multaq, I have not felt the same. I tire easily. Usually in the evenings, about 1hr30min after I take my evening Multaq dose, I start feeling unwell. It's hard to describe. I have this slight heavy feeling in my chest, sometimes slight burning on my left side of chest. I've told my cardiologist and EP about it, and they don't believe it is the medicine. Although my EP has said I could try stopping Multaq, but my AFIB may return.
I am not sure what is causing this unwell feeling, but it was worse before I had my gallbladder removed. I would get extremely fatigued. I am at the point of going to Mayo Clinic to see if they can figure this out. Is it normal to not feel good when on anti-arrhythmic drugs for AFIB? Or could it be something else going on?
