Today’s topic probably won’t effect you, ever, in your life–BUT you are bound to know someone who might benefit from this information–If not today, one day.
“Pill in the pocket,” refers to the drug FLECAINIDE which can (in some cases) be used to reverse atrial fibrillation (a-fib). It’s called “pill in the pocket,” because studies done with this drug have patients take the pill as soon as they feel their heart beat go from “normal” or sinus rhythm into the irregular, a-fib. Taken quickly, like this, the results are OUTSTANDING, working almost all the time! Ironically, it is not even an expensive medication.
Caution: NOT EVERY PERSON WHO SUFFERS WITH A-FIB IS A CANDIDATE FOR THIS SOMEWHAT MIRACULOUS TREATMENT. This IS something to discuss with a cardiologist or arrhythmia specialist.
If you know anyone who this might benefit, please pass it on. Sometimes these magic bullets are kept a little too quiet. That is a topic for another day.
