ICD went off due to heart arrhythmia


I was told my ICD went off the other day. I had thought I fainted but the nurse said that the ICD shocked me out of it.


She said the Dr. will likely change my meds. What type of meds would help arrithmia? I also think that my Entresto has something to do with the arrithmia since my issues started after I was on a full dose.

After mine went off they put me on Amiodarone.  Not a fun med!  Avoid it if you can but definately take it if you need it!  I tried Entresto but since my heart likes to throw alot of PVC's I found that it accentuated them.  Not a fun feeling.  Good luck!
