Brief history - I am 42, healthy, with a structural heart abnormality. I went into a-fib twice in 2015, the most recent was in October. I was cardioverted both times. I have been on tambocor (flecainide) since October. I started at 200mg/day, went down to 100mg about 6 weeks ago. I saw my cardiologist yesterday and he has suggested slowly weening myself off the tambacor. I will start by only taking tambocor on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
So there is a risk that the a-fib can come back by the time i take the tambocor as the tambocor will have enough time to get out my system in between doses.
He has obviously told me to monitor for a-fib. I plan to do this by checking my heart rate using an HRM (a Polar H7 to be precise) regularly.
Any wise words against or for this approach? .... I mean using the HRM, not the weening off.
