Almost six months ago I went into A-fib with RVR up to 170. I Stayed the night in the hospital and got a dose of IV lopressor. I was in a fib for like eight hours and converted back to SR the next morning. I was sent home on 25mg metoprolol BID and a month later had another a fib episode that was like one minute but was recorded on heart monitor. My cardiologist increased my dose to 50mg BID. After further testing I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and hypothyroidism induced a-fib. I have had my c-pap for a couple of months now and have been very compliant and I take synthroid for my thyroid. It has been five months since I had an episode and I have also quit caffeine as well. Since I am fixing the underlying issue, I was wondering if I could come off metoprolol with consulting with my cardiologist of course. I really don’t like the side effects of metoprolol and was wondering if it was possible. I am 27 years old and don’t want to feel tired the rest of my life.
