Zero guarantees. All: the Type 1 antiarrhythmic agents, as documented in the CAST Trial & analysis of other trials, neither work for most individuals (CAST Trial selected out the minorities for which these agents did decrease arrhythmias by Holter) increased mortality event rates. These agents promoted for symptoms, not health. Focus on underlying issues wiser. See: https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/689879.
