Hi, I have been dealing with a-flutter a-fib and other svt rhythums that need interverntion beyond a simple beta blocker for about 2 years. 5 ablations and numerous cardioversions later I still have problems with drugs holding me in a sinus rhythum. However, the last ablation has had minimal success as I am mostly controled now with 160mg of sodalol x 2 a day. Incident’s of fast heart rates are increasing after 5 months.

The only drugs that i haven’t tried at length is amioderone. Looking for advise, Pat
