I am on 2 a-fib meds, diltiazem and fleccanide. Whie I am grateful they are preventing the a-fib and "protecting" (?) my heart, the side effects are just not worth it sometimes. I have gained a lot of weight, I have no energy anymore, my sex drive is non-existant and really straining my marriage, and I am just getting more and more depressed every day. I would like to know if there are better choices out there with all the new meds they come up with, something that won't destroy my life while saving it. I am almost at the point where I think it would be better to get off the meds completely and just take my chances with the a-fib. Someone please help! I need advice!! God bless you, thanks!
