  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • after taking a few doses of meloxicam for back pain my doctor discovered atrial fibrillation that was not there previously. Now the doctor has put me on metopolol for the atrial fibrillation but information suggests that it is not very effective and can cause ventricular fibrillation.
