I've been taking Flecainide for six years, 50g twice daily, and Bisoprolol 2.5g daily.
Last year I had a lot of stress with a family situation, and my heart went crazy with pauses and double beats, so that I couldn't sleep and felt panicky, which of course made it worse. I didn't have AF though. My GP prescribed another 50g Flecainide tablet at night, and almost immediately my heart calmed down, but for the last few days I've been having a lot of ectopics again, though I don't feel as anxious as I did last year. Being a pessimistic sort of person I wonder if things will just get worse until I'm taking the maximum dose of Flecainide, and that scares me because of things I've read on the forum about Flecainide being a dangerous drug. It seems to have stopped me having AF, at least for now, for which I'm grateful, but I'd like to know of other peoples' experiences taking it long term.
