After having the ablation my heart rate was constantly going high and this was caught on an ECG at my doctors . As per the instructions from the hospital I emailed this information to the arrhythmia nurses at the John Radcliffe.
Firstly they took me off flecainide - heart rate was still playing up.
Then, just over 2 weeks ago, I was prescribed amiodarone.
Week 1 I was to take 3 x 200mg daily along with the Tildiem I was already taking.
Week 2 stop the Tildiem and reduce amiodarone to 2 x 200g daily.
Week 3 reduce amiodarone to 1 x 200mg daily until further notice.
I was also put on the waiting list for a second ablation (to give me a head start before going for my 12 week check up - whenever that is!!!).
The amiodarone seem to be working through week 2 but since Friday when I reduced the dose for the final time I've been having more episodes.
Hopefully it will get used to the lower dose and even more hopefully I will not develop any of the horrendous side effects listed with the drug information or detailed by various other AFers on this group.
I've got my fingers crossed!!!!
