Atrial fibrillation: Quinidine is only rarely used any more. We older doctors learned years ago that we killed some folks with it. There are more recent and safer drugs that we use now. Talk to your doctor to discuss if you have afib, a cloud doctor shouldn't be advising you without knowing your situation.
