Oct 7, 2019 · Dofetilide (Tikosyn): adjusting dosage in Heart Rhythm Conditions

The fact that you are still having intolerance to the Flecaidide may be your body telling you that it is TOXIC in one way or another. Can you choose a drug or a combination of supplements that heal or at least manage the arrhythmias? The information is in Google if you search. Certainly, my arrhythmias were caused by an accumulation of toxins. Our world is becoming overrun with them, including factory foods and synthetic (chemical) drugs. Just food for thought.

Sep 1, 2019 · Dofetilide (Tikosyn): adjusting dosage in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Yes, I am a Tikosyn user for over the past year. I have a lifetime of extra beats that in the past 4 years, turned into Afib. Over the years, I've been on all the heart meds and this one is new and it is lactose-free which is important to me since I have milk intolerances and all others exacerbate my arrhythmia. Tikosyn, 200mg am/pm worked well with acebutolol for tackycardia for me. Wanting to get rid of the Afib, the doc did a 5 hr. cryoablation in Jan. After, because I was terribly unstable (in my 70s) he jacked me up to 400 mg am/pm where I remain. My Afib is gone after 3 mo. I am in sinus rhythm., but still go into tacky when eating foods I'm intolerant of, and for that, I just pop an acebutolol and if serious, 0.25 mg. clonazepam. I am also on the anticoagulant, Savaysa, which also is dairy free. Tikosyn works well for me, and my regimen of heart meds is practical and not overdone. But after that ablation (my 3rd.), I am left with MCAS, a mast cell illness, probably because of the massive antibiotics given in surgery.

Aug 13, 2019 · Magnesium and heart rhythm problems in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I have become intolerant of Magnesium Glycinate and all other forms as well, even Threonate, and cannot tolerate even 1/8 tsp powder. As a result, I wake with racing heart and fierce leg and foot cramps that I cannot work out easily. Any suggestions?

It depends what type of Mag it is. Mag threonate is less irritatiog. Go in increasing until you hit the effective amount.

Thanks for this. I plan to use Heart Math's bio feedback through the summer also. Recommended by Cleveland Clinic.

After years of being on diltiazem,, and Tikosyn and Acebutolol, doc took me off because of low bp. We doubled my Ace to 800mg/day instead.

May 25, 2019 · Should I consider ablation? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I can give you my perspective, since I have had SVTs and Afib since my 20s when I eat gut intolerant foods. Certain foods set up systemic inflammation throughout my body giving me muscle ache, IBS, fatigue, and serious arrhythmias. Dairy products are a huge trigger. I had ablations in 2001, 2011 and Jan./2019, all unsuccessful. Since January's ablation, I am left with Mast Cell Activation Disorder, being since intolerant of most foods and meds. I react even to Savaysa, my anticoagulant that has no lactose filler. I believe that for the 5 hr procedure, I was given massive doses of broad spectrum antibiotic which in turn did no favors for my digestive system by killing off my microbiome. My heart is now recovering from Afib and arrhythmia, and my lifestyle is changed for the better. If you are experiencing any connection between eating and heart arrhythmia, I suggest you find a metabolic cardiologist. They will, among other things, check you for a genetic condition called MTHFR (40% of the U.S. population) and use an approach other than one so questionable for success. http://www.afibbers.org/resources/strategy.pdf
