Todd A. writes that he has A-Flutter with occasional A-Fib. He has been electrocardioverted 6 times and chem-cardioverted 3 times.
Now Off Meds Completely
“I have stopped alcohol completely and work hard to stay very hydrated. Since doing these two things, I am OFF medications completely and have not been electrocardioverted for 8 months.
I was chem-cardioverted once (300 mg flecainide) 3 months ago. I do take Eliquis (blood thinner) as a precaution.”
Lesson Learned: Stop Alcohol, Stay Hydrated
“I advise everyone to stop all alcohol consumption and stay hydrated. At the least, it could have a positive influence on the number of A-Fib/Flutter episodes, severity, and length. It did for me.”
