In brief: Slow Down There
Antiarrhythmics are, as a rule, complicated drugs with a lot of side effects and a ton of potential contraindications.
They are not easily interchangeable. At the very least a cardiologist and better still an electrophysiologist should help you decide which are eligible for you specifically. That said, dofetilide, sotalol, flecainide, propafenone, verapamil and dronedarone are some freq. Choices.
