WPW: Hard to know with out knowing what kind of side effects. Ask your doctor if you have Ebstein's anomaly, individuals with more then 1 accessory pathway.Discuss whether ablation can be considered again ( did it fail due to technical difficulties or because you have more then 1 pathway?) Serataline is a SSRI anti-depressant, not for arrhythmias,so can change. Discuss with doctor/Health Tap Prime

Options: there are always options. Talk with your doctor about side effects. If you dont feel your concerns are being addressed, get an opinion from a different one.
