I was dignosed as having AF back in January, and prescribed Bosoprolol, which seemed to work, with only a few AF episodes occurring, which weren't disabling in nature at all. I was given the all clear after more tests and being AF free for a good while, and told I could stop taking it, but after only 12 days felt slight chest discomfort, low energy levels and further AFs. This persisted all through May, I thought it was just a virus infection, but after seeing the doctor in despair, was told to restart it, and after a 2 to 3 weeks felt well again.
My concern is I really feel the cold, as the Bisoprolol slows the heart and thus the circulation and the Cardiologist has suggested Flecainide as an alternative.
Who out there has had knowledge and experience of taking Flecainide and how was it for you. I feel really well at the moment, but know as soon as the cold weather comes I'll be freezing, ...Thanks, Bill
