Thanks for the detailed information.

You are on good set of recommended medicines and couple of off label medicines as well like fish oil. I wouldn't believe there will good role for ubiquinol in your case.

My suggestion to you is to have your ECHO and ECG repeated. Hearing your overall situation there should be significant improvement. After that we should be able to decide if you need any more medicines.

Please do get back to me with report. Till such time no need to add any other medicines.
