Although I was shocked that it interacts with erythromycin, one of the few antibiotics i can still take(I guess not) it was originally prescribed for HBP, but also got rid of my A-Fib within a year of starting it, so I'm saticfied, but have been prescribed erythromicin a few times while taking this drug. I'll talk to my doctor about it.

The first day I took this medication I got a splitting headache from my neck, all the way up the back of my head all the way to my eyes. No pain medicine helped the headache. It took about 18 hours for the headache to go away. It was the worst headache of my life. The first side effect listed for this medication is headache and it's a big one. Prepare yourself.

I have used Dilacor along with Atenolol for 3 months, and the AFIB has improved. I still have AFIB about once a week, but my heart rate is lower so the event is much more controlled. I have no side-effects except ongoing tiredness...and that may be due to the Atenolol.
