Afib: There are various antiarrythmics for the treatment of afib and dysopramide is one of them and these medications may be used to prevent, stop or lower the ventricular response to afib. Anticoagulants May also be prescribed except in very low risk patients. I recommend that you follow your cardiologist's advice as he/she knows all your findings.
