I would be grateful for your opinions. I have been on flecanide 100mg x2 for 3 and a half months. For the first 2 months I had no episodes of A.F. then over a 3 week period I had 4 episodes each lasting 12 hours. (Previous to meds I was in A.F. for 75% of the time ). My E.P. had asked me to notify him of any breakthrough episodes so I emailed him and his response was to make me appointment to discuss long term management of A.F. and in the meantime he increased my dose to 150mg x2. The prescription took a while to sort out as they always do and in the ensuing 3 weeks while waiting for new tablets I have had no more episodes. As I don't like taking any more drugs than necessary I am inclined to hang on until my appointment in 3 weeks. A member of the family who is a young G.P. says I should take them as he has prescribed. What do you think? I know I should email him again and ask what to do but don't want to unless I I have to. What do you guys think? All opinions are welcomed.
