I'm now in my third week of a reduced dose of Flecainide - down from 2 x 100mg gradually to 2 x 50mg. In that time I've had no AF or tachycardia but in the last week (on 2 x 50mg) have had several half-hour runs of PVC's, coming every 2nd, 3rd, 6th beat, singly and randomly. I could better understand if I had PAC's which are more related to AF but why the PVC's have gone from an occasional jump in the past to semi-organised runs is very strange.
Before I mention any of this to a physician, I would be interested in other people's experiences. Any comments from members who cope with these things, or have had similar experiences after reducing an anti-arrhythmic drug or post-ablation - would be most welcome. I do so want to stay on the lower dose of Flecainide and would rather put up with PVC's if they really are harmless and that is the price I have to pay!
For other members about to take the step of Flecainide reduction - I feel so well (apart from the half-hours!) and every day that passes means 100mg fewer of Flecainide through my system. Fingers are still crossed for all of us.
Any comments are very welcome,
