Propafenone (Rythmol) has been very successsful for many people with A-Fib and V-Tach. Some people have not tolerated the side efects which you have already researched and as ar as sudden death, IMHO that might be patient's that decided to stop the med and go into a deadly rhythm.
I feel that you need to discuss this at great length with your cardiologist as you have legitimate concerns about using this drug.
The Bisoprolol (Zebeta) is a synthetic beta blocker. Bisoprolol is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It works by slowing the heart rate and relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard.
My recommendation is to discuss this with your physician and always be familiar with the side efects including food interactions.
