A member asked:

Can you recommend a medication to possibly try for my wolff-parkinson-white syndrome? i'm on propranolol but to many side eff & i don't want ablation.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Get the ablation: There are many beta blockers. Atenolol has fewer side effects than Propranolol or metoprolol (lopressor). However, WPW is one of the causes of sudden death in young people. Medication is not reliable enough. Get the ablation and be done with it. You'll be glad you did (when you're telling your grandchildren about it).
