My cardiologist asked me to meet him halfway, prior to an appointment in four months to consider abalation. The plan he set in place for me was to start taking Flecanide, and to cut out coffee. I have taken Flecanide before without much effect. The cutting out of my three cups of daily coffee seems to have made quite a difference. Anybody else had this experience ? It has only been a week, but hopefully it has lessened the attacks of AF.
