I have had afib since 2006. Been on toprol and norvasc for heart rhythm and b/p control. Been using rhymol last couple of years to control afib when I started having an episode. I had been in an afib episode three weeks ago and passed out cold due to too low b/p, and went to ER. Few days later, cardiologist put me on 50mg flecainide twice/day and said not to take rhymol anymore, but keep taking the other meds.
I have been fine since then, but have noticed my pulse is mid-high 40s at night and low-mid 50s during day. The b/p is good. I do feel somewhat slightly light headed, but believe it is the toprol mostly. I take 50mg toprol and 10 mg norvasc. I am concerned about getting too low pulse when driving, especially, and passing out. I have not had another afib episode or felt like passing out.
Thoughts and recommendations based on your experiences???? How is flecainide working out for those taking it? How you feeling in regard to pulse rate?
