Hi. I have had afib 14 years, 3 ablations , various meds. I have been on Flecanide for 3 years, then off it for 3 years until sept, now on 2x 100 per day= 200.
I have read on this forum that it can be dangerous long term. Exactly what does it or can do to some of us long term and what is considered long term. Toxic to the liver? Toxic to kidneys? Hard on heart muscles? Without it, I would be in afib almost every day. With it, I now only get a very few ectopic ocassionaly, not even every day, this is the best I have felt in 14 years. ( not to mention I had my last ablation aug 30)
Ep said he wasn’t,t very optimistic this time, hey doc ,this is the best you have done as far as I am feeling. I am on xeralto also. ( that has always worried me as I had near death brain aneurysm in 2003)
Love this forum, I read it every day, just to hear the good supporting words from all of you. Thanks Marney
