I just came into this situation. I was on hzt and it was time for a refill so during my exam the Dr. heard an irregular heart beat. She took me off of the 25mg of just the hzt and put me on Metoprolol 50mg. and a blood thinner. I had a severe reaction, super short of breath and very dizzy. So I quit taking it. She had arranged for me to set the heart Dr. and when I saw him I went through all of his tests and he determined that I did have atrial fibrillation. He did put me back on the 25mg of htz and a blood thinner. But I was to have my regular Dr. watch those medicines. Before I could get into see her I had to go to hospital 2 times for the same shortness of breath and very dizzy. The first trip to the hospital I was dehydrated and low on potassium. On the 2nd trip to the hospital my vitals were good. They had no clue why I got so out of breath or dizzy. I am thinking that he hzt is not so good for atrial fibrillation. Any info would be helpful. I will be seeing her tomorrow.
