In 2001 following surgery I had days of very very frequent atrial arrhythmias including PACs, couplets, and runs of atrial tachycardia. I could feel the arrhymias. Atenolol did nothing to control them. Digoxin 0.25mg stopped the arrhymuias almost right away. The doctor discontinued the digoxin after 6 months free of atrial arrhythinias. In May of 2013 I again began to experience bouts of atri...

In 2001 following surgery I had days of very very frequent atrial arrhythmias including PACs, couplets, and runs of atrial tachycardia. I could feel the arrhymias. Atenolol did nothing to control them. Digoxin 0.25mg stopped the arrhymuias almost right away. The doctor discontinued the digoxin after 6 months free of atrial arrhythinias. In May of 2013 I again began to experience bouts of atrial arrhymias that I could feel in my throat. There was one run of what felt like atrial fibrillation for about 1 hour while I was sitting in a meeting and could keep my hand on my pulse. The rhythm was totally irregular during that time. It converted to what felt like a normal sinus rhythm after getting up and moving around. The doctor had me increase my Atenolol 50mg to twice a day. That did nothing but seemed to increase the arrhymias. A holter monitor for 24 hours revealed thousands of premature atrials beats and 55 runs of atrial arrhymia. He then ordered Digoxin 0.25mg daily. The first dose resulted in a significant reduction in atrial arrhymias and within a day or two they were almost totally erraticated. In the 2 months since being on Digoxin, there is only a very rare occurance of a premature atrial beat, based on what I feel in my throat when they occur and checking my puse at least daily.Read More Read Less
