Hi Maryann,

Thank you for the info. I was born with pulmonary atresia/tetrology of fallot with VSD, which was repaired eleven years ago. About 2 years ago I was diagnosed with secondary pulmonary hypertension. I just came off the medication due to side effects and have been experiencing atrial fibrillation/arrythmia's. I know this is the cause of the hypertension (i hope) but can this issue go away once the proper medication is prescribed for the hypertension? Would I also need medication for the arrythmia as well? I am having a catheterization done after the new year to check the pressures of the heart and check for blockages. They will determine the right meds to take based on the outcome. I am just concerned and dont know what to expect. I have been having anxiety attacks that trigger the arrythmia's more than anything else. I would appreciate any information you could give me. thank you so much. Marizella
