Has anybody on Flecainide checked their Red Cell Magnesium levels? Over a 3 year period I have taken extra Mg and had regular 6 monthly level tests and still I struggle to get into the recommended range (2.08 - 3.0).
This issue may be important to some as I suspect many are on Flecainide but don't take Mg supplement, which could explain why for some Flecainide only seems to work for a time because the Flec whilst dealing with the immediate AF problem could actually at the same time be reducing Mg and building a requirement for a bigger Flec dose.
Notes: The Red Cell Mg test is more indicative than the regular Mg test your GP will do (which almost always comes out normal) and in the UK can be done through BIoLab London. My results since starting Flec (2 x 100mg/day) have been 2.16, 1.97, 2.45, 2.02, 2.35 & today 1.90. My Mg daily dose is up to a level when my stools become more mobile.
Thanks as always for your thoughts.
