  1. Bill,

    Each person with afib is different, so what works for one may not work for another. In addition, the most effective medication is less than 50% effective, and stops working over time. It also varies depending on whether you’re in afib all the time or whether you go in and out of it.

    Therefore, finding the right medication can often be an experiment between doctor and patient. There are two major approaches, rate control and rhythm control. Learn more about them here:

    Hope this helps.
