    I went in for routine stress test and was told I had Afib. Tried bystolic and flecainide. Didn’t help. I didn’t have any symtoms to begin with. Anwyay, had the ablation Dec. 16. I felt ok, a little tired. Dr. had to cut my bystolic in half ’cause I felt tired with the dose I was taking Now I have a problem of not being able to sleep. I don’t know if it is the side of effect of the meds or I’m just stressed about all this and keep waking up several times at night. I’m exhausted from not much sleep. Have any of you had this problem? I go back to my cardiologist in wed. It takes about 3 months to see if the ablation worked. I was curious if you could take a zanex to sleep with the meds I’m on. I can’t take ambian. Is there another sleeping pill I can take to get some much relieved sleep>
