First, a quick update. I had some tests done and my cardio ordered a 30 day event monitor which showed I had two events of Afib that lasted less that ten seconds each.
I was first put on Propafenone, but after three days had to come off of it because of bad side effects. I was then placed on flecainide, and given the lowest dose but after one week the side effects were coming on. I called my EP and he said could I try for another week. I took it for another two weeks and had to jump off it. It has been four days now off of the flecainide and starting to feel much better. Vision and breathing much better. I have been reading all the posts for this drug and it appears that for a lot of folks it works very well. Question, given the long half life will I be free of all the effects in 4 or 5 days or is it the type that side effects can linger for a while? The next step is for me to wear a halter monitor for two days and EP said we would go from there.
