As a newbie this is my first post and I am looking forward to some advice and opinions
That may help me. I will try to condense the 20years.
1997 - 2002 had Sotalol and aspirin
2002 - 2008. Had Flecainide as a PIP. ( had 7 or 8 episodes per year)
2008 - 2015 I had 2 x 100mg of Flecainide daily and no episodes of PAF
May 2015 had a cardioversion and was put onto Warfarin ( very bad side effects with other anticoagulants.
Sept 2016 another cardioversion and dose of Flecainide increased to 150 x 20 for 2weeeks and then small dose of digoxin. The problem is I have had 2weeks of the increased Flecainide and do not feel well at all.Shortness of breath,any exertion I have to stand still and deep breath and have water.My BP is all over the place and my pulse is never more than 50, Before I go to bed and first thing in the morning it is anything between 43 and 48. I am having an ECG on Thursday and am supposed to start the Digoxin after the results. To me that does not seem a good idea so will ask the nurse before I take any action . I have had no PAF since the last cardioversion.
Sorry to be so long winded but would appreciate some comments. Jo.
PS I also take Ibersartan for HBP. Vit D, Omega 3, and Magnesiun.
