I do have a defribulator/pacemaker combo and it does show I have not been in Afib since July!

Comment:
This drug worked wonders for me. I went back into aFib after having a cardio ablation and managed to stay out of Afib for 6 months but unfortunately went back into AFib. Cardio versions could not get me back to normal rythum but after 18 hours and 2 doses of Tykosyn I was back in norm aql rythum. The drug was easy to takle without any side effects.
