What Is New in Treatment for AFib?

Generally speaking, there are three types of treatment for atrial fibrillation – natural treatment, medications and surgical operation. You will become better and even get recovered from the disease through these types of treatment.

Dr. James Reiffel brings out the direction in drug treatment for AFib. He says that you can combine drugs, perhaps in lower dose, to try to get additive efficacy but to reduce the risk of likelihood of adverse side effects because many of those are dose dependent. For example, the combination of ranolazine (Ranexa) and dronedarone (Multaq), both used in lower doses, works well for AFib. Thus you can control the rate and rhyme of your heartbeat while adverse side effects are blocked away due to small dose.

Remember to ask your doctor for advice, for you can’t prescribe for yourself.
