Because of some short-lived paroxysmal afib episodes I was started on Flecainide in mid-2016 -- 100mg x 2 per 24 hours. Since then the 100 mg X 2 has been reduced to 50mg x2, and, more recently the cardiologist gave me the OK to reduce that to just the nighttime dose with the morning dose used as a PIP. Because I haven't yet needed the PIP I'm essentially taking only 50 mg per 24 hours. I also take Xarelto 15 mg at night. Since being put on these two meds I've experienced anxiety attacks now and then, (plus a general feeling of anxiety most of the time). Along with this are dreams that, although not nightmarish in content, come with a frightening sense of doom and gloom. Even when I remember the general setting of the dream later in the day or several days later, that feeling of fear and doom floods into my head, often with jumbled fragments of "memories" that don't make any sense. This is a huge puzzle to me, and quite worrisome. I've had CtScans, and EEGs and have been assured that the brain looks healthy and I'm not going crazy (could've fooled me!). Looking for something to blame, I'm wondering if anyone else has had these kinds of dreams, "memories", feeling of terror, etc., as a result of Flecainide or even Xarelto? My memory also has become alarmingly bad since taking these two meds, but I believe that aspect has already been discussed. I think I've also posted a note before about the doom and gloom and anxiety attacks, so please forgive me if this seems like old news. Just hoping that perhaps it might catch someone's eye who might identify in some way. I welcome all input! Thanks everyone!
