Comment:
I was diagnosed with AFib in November 2007 and began taking 325MG. Honestly after reading the problems people were having in the reviews on here, I was a bit reluctant. But after being on it for 4 years, I can honestly say I have had no side effects at all. Not one. Nothing. And I have not had a single AFib attack since taking it. So don't let these reviews scare you too much.

Even my saliva taste as bad as the left over taste from taking Predisone. I have to constantly have something in my mouth,(hard candies ... Show Full Comment
