In follow up to our announcement yesterday of the Top Ten Atrial Fibrillation Videos of 2011, StopAfib.org now unveils the Top Ten Atrial Fibrillation Articles of 2011.

Major topics of interest to the atrial fibrillation patient community this year were afib stroke prevention and the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scoring tools that determine the need for anticoagulants. Also popular were stories about anticoagulant medications, including warfarin (Coumadin), dabigatran (Pradaxa), and rivaroxaban (Xarelto). Afib treatment was another popular topic, with top stories related to catheter ablation, hybrid ablation, and Multaq. And sleep apnea, another perennial favorite, was also on the list.

    I went in for routine stress test and was told I had Afib. Tried bystolic and flecainide. Didn’t help. I didn’t have any symtoms to begin with. Anwyay, had the ablation Dec. 16. I felt ok, a little tired. Dr. had to cut my bystolic in half ’cause I felt tired with the dose I was taking Now I have a problem of not being able to sleep. I don’t know if it is the side of effect of the meds or I’m just stressed about all this and keep waking up several times at night. I’m exhausted from not much sleep. Have any of you had this problem? I go back to my cardiologist in wed. It takes about 3 months to see if the ablation worked. I was curious if you could take a zanex to sleep with the meds I’m on. I can’t take ambian. Is there another sleeping pill I can take to get some much relieved sleep>
