I've developed serious side effects from the propafenone. Dr switched me over from 100MG flecainide because I was still going back into AFib. He now has me on 325MG 3x daily. When it was only 225MG, I didn't have as pronounced effects as I do now. The critical one is shortness of breath even with minimal activity (like walking across a room). My EP (who prescribed it and the Flecainide) can't get me in for 3+ weeks, the cardiologist for 2+ weeks (and he won't mess with meds he didn't prescribe).
I can't see myself waiting on this, I feel like I'm dying half the time. Has anyone ever properly weaned themselves down from Propafenone, substituting Flecainide in its place? And, if so, what were your results? I'm asking for your experience ONLY, please, for legal reasons, don't offer suggestions that you haven't tried personally!
