... to rhythm. Recent EKG's/Holter monitor showed still out of rhythm 70% of time, so VA cardiologist had me stop medicine. Yet I read we should not skip, or stop medicine suddenly. Does that mean I should come off gradually? Or since the medicine was not keeping me in rhythm, was it ok to stop... cold turkey? No follow-up at VA for 5 weeks, assuming I will be out of rhythm during that time. Seems... not altogether on top of the problem. Pacemaker brought up over a year ago, but decided against because the defetilide seemed to be working at the time. Guess I will "cross" my fingers and hope I make it to the next VA appointment
