Comment:
a/flutter started after I got flu/num in 5/13.I tried cardio version lasted 3 days. I went home with samples to try while waiting for 2nd shock, my a/fib stopped after 2/3 days of taking this. I have been on 400mg 2 a day. it's been 5 months & no a/fib. I almost forgot I have this problem. I was worried about taking this but so far it's been fine.
