I have been taking this for 4 months now and although I still occasionally have A fib, I'm not having severe prolonged a fib and when I do it lasts just a few hours instead of all day or all night. It hasn't totally gotten rid of my A fib. I also have a pacemaker/defibulator that paces me.

Comment:
A-Fibs were controlled, but regular bouts of malaria-like symptoms (102 fever, severe body-shaking chills) every three months baffled ma and my doctors until I was moved to another drug. Then I realized the connection! However, otherwise, it was quite effective.
