"Have had atrial fibrillation for 25 years. Tried a number a medicines and was on amiodarone for a few years but had to stop. Decided to give Rythmol a try, and have used it for more than 15 years. Have not had a noticeable attack of atrial fibrillation for many years, although I did land in emergency for another arrhythmia last year. This has been a life saver for me. Supply is getting to be an issue though."

"I've been on Rythmol for Atrial Fibrillation for about 6 months. Initially, it wasn't working too well. I'd be in rhythm for a few days and go out for a day or more. After a few months of this I asked my Cardiologist if he could suggest another anti-arrhythmia drug but he suggested we give Rythmol more time. He increased my dosage gradually until I was taking the maximum dose, two 150mg tablets 3 times a day. I have been in rhythm for over two months now and I never had any side effects so I am very satisfied at this point."

"I have taken Rythmol for about 6 months now in combination with Xarelto. I absolutely HATE taken any meds at all! I was having to go to the ER and hospitalized several times before I started on it for afib and high BP. That is fairly controlled now which I am thankful for. The biggest side effects I see are drying of skin especially feet, arms, hands, extreme constipation like my gut feels paralyzed no matter what I eat and sometimes drop in BP especially after meals and first thing in the morning. I want to get OFF the meds but am afraid to, don't know how, and cannot get doctor's approval for that so far."

"The combo of atenolol in the morning and 1 propafanone at bedtime has stopped my atrial-fibrillation in its tracks!"

"Rythmol caused my blood pressure and pulse to drop dangerously low. I was admitted in hospital for two days. "
