I do not want to be alarmist but my pharmacy called me earlier this week and said there is a UK wide shortage of Flecanide and they cannot get any in before I will run out. They have asked my cardiologist for an alternative. Has anyone else heard the same story?
I am concerned as I have been taking 3x50mg of Flecanide for 3.5 years and have 2 ablation procedures that have failed to eliminate the AF. I am aware the range of drugs for treating AF is quite limited and certainly it took a while initially to get the dose of Flecanide to be effective.
