I am on a lot of pills for several problems . I take atenolol for gout, I have diabetics I take simvastatin for, I had total heart block , level three , I also have high blood pressure . I take metapropanol, a clonidine patch, potassium pills, vitamins glucosamine fit joints, cbd for back pains, and citrulline to help my circulation.
I might add that my arythms almost always happened between one and three in the morning. Tea has more cafine than coffee. Many sodas also affect afib. Look at your food for problems
And weight is a big problems. We can never cure afib, but can control it most of the time. Read up the causes on Mayo Clinic and Cleveland clinic and other internet sights

Last time I went to cardiologist he said my afib was now less than one percent of the time. I am a stubborn old man (89). LAst summer I had been having skipped heart almost every night between one and three in the night. After a life style evaluation I was determined to try to stop the attacks. I went through my meds one at a time , no result then stopped my alcohol, all kinds, even mouth wash with alcohol, stopped coffee, and started decaf. Stopped some aged cheeses. No sodas, any kind, no tea because it has more caffeine than coffee. Don’t smoke and haven’t for 38 years . I even found that chicken marsella (wine used for cooking the chicken) would start an attack. Net result of all this is afib has been contained
Also add two more things. IM now very careful about getting too tired from working, and try to get too upset . I still ride my bike every day , play bridge once. Week , do sudoko every day and travel where I want to go no matter how far,

I too have sss. I had a total heart bloc, level three . Drs immediately put in a pacemaker five years ago . also had bradycardia. Pacemaker was set at 60 heart beats for low limped along with this and meds clonidine patch metatopol and some luck this spring after a wellness dr visit I got curious and studied up on my situation. Found out there are triggers that can set afib off. I have changed my lifestyle and diet to avoid these. Last one was alcohol. Now avoid this. Used to have arrhythmia late at night. Since I got hold of my lifestyle and no alcohol I have good Rhythm, with good bp.

I had the same kind of expirence turned out that I was able to stop it by not using wine or other alcohol-one of the triggers
Suggest u look at triggers and see if one of them are the cause.
Funny story about this. Went to local restaurant and ordered chicken marineo ( wine sautéed). Guess what the arythem started that night at one am
