In brief: Speak to your doctor

There are no medications that routinely must be stopped prior to cardioversion.
However, in certain cases, your doctor might wish you to hold meds that control heart rates from going too fast, to minimize the risk of causing excessively slow heart rates once you are back in a normal rhythm.
