I started 50mg fleccainaide bd and diltiazem last week . Within 9 days I had had 2 episodes of af that lasted the usual 7-8 hrs then went back to nsr on its own.
My recent pattern has been to have one Ep of af every 2 weeks. Has anybody heard of fleccainaide causing more eps?.
I rang the cardiologist and my fellow is on leave so got the oncall and he said to stop both those meds and go back to magnesium and fish oil.
See Ep on Thursday and think will go straight to ablation and not muck around with pills any more than necessary. Just diagnosed in oct 2015 and now going for ablation just a few months later- feels really fast. True I had had symptoms for years but just ignored them until they could not be ignored any longer. Bit nervous about ablation, tips advice most welcome thanks
