Has anyone, using Flecainide as a 'pill in the pocket' for AF episodes, had any notable adverse reactions? I've been prescribed Flecainide by my EP, through my GP, in order to arrest any episodes I might have prior to an ablation in a couple of months. I've never taken them before but am slightly concerned having read some websites which say that 'first time use should take place under the supervision of a hospital'. I've checked back with my EP and he has dismissed that as unnecessary, saying that it is perfectly safe to take the dosage (2 x 100mg initially, then 1 x 100mg after two hours if NSR hasn't returned) at home.
However, if there are any horror stories out there, I'd like to hear about them and perhaps I'll park up close to A&E when I take them!!!
