Please do not choose a formula based on your condition, particularly with something as potentially dangerous as atrial fibrillation. Formulas are generally chosen based on your individual diagnostic pattern from a Chinese Medicine perspective - see (“treating the cause vs. the symptoms” for more). There is a good chance that either an shen bu xin wan or tian wan bu xin wan would be part of your overall treatment. However, on their own and/or without proper diagnosis they could make whatever was leading the vertigo worse (or better depending on your underlying diagnosis). I would strongly suggest you see a licensed acupuncturist in your area and obtain proper treatment.

Acupuncture in particular can be particularly useful for many cases and is my preferred mode of treatment in most cases. Here is one of many studies looking at . In the study referenced acupuncture performed as well or better than the commonly used western drugs with no side effects.
