Flecainide changed my life as far as episodes of AF was concerned. I could go 2 sometimes 3 yrs without any episodes. I had to stop Flecainide because cardiologist have seen a Brugada pattern on my ECG. Whether the sudden ceasing of this drug caused AF to return with a vengeance I don't know but I now have episodes every other day. Also I get skipped heart beats. I now have been given Amiodarone to take so hope this will be as effective as Flecainide was. I'm worried though about side affects as had none with Flecainide. Fingers crossed.
