Comment:
I have had A-Fib since 1999. Been cardioverted numerous times. Up until last January 2009 I was in A-Fib 5-7 times a month. I started Tambocor and have been in a short A-fib spell for a couple of hours. Fantastic! I now walk/run and work out 4 times a week and feel great. I can not say enough about what this medicine has done to change my life.

PREVIOUSLY HAD CARDIOVERSION AND WENT BACK INTO A FIB AFTER ONLY 2 DAYS. THIS MEDICATION PUT ME BACK IN RHYTHM AFTER ONLY 4 DAYS. (SO FAR, SO GOOD)
