I am taking Propafenone 150mg twice daily for Atrial Tachycardia and i have some horrible side effects. Does anyone else have a burning feeling over their whole body. This has just started after 4 weeks on Propafenone, when the doctor told me to take an extra 75 mg at 2.00 pm. I already have dizziness, blurred vision, headaches, very strong painful tingling in my feet, legs and hands, nausea, loss of appetite, agitation, fatigue, stomach pain. I am already on Prednisolone for Polymyalgia Rheumatica, down to 8 mg daily. I also take Atenolol 50 mg daily.
My head feels spaced out sometimes and I have fainted once with low blood pressure and nearly did again twice yesterday evening.
It is the burning feelng which is the worst thing at the moment, does anyone have any tips for dealng with it? I have just taken 2 paracetamol to see if that helps. It is just gone 6.00am and I have been awake since 4 trying to deal with it.
Thank you for reading this. I look forward to your replies.
