Hi I have just returned from holiday having ended up in hospital with an episode of atrial flutter which had to be cardioverted. I had been doing well on 50mg flecainide twice daily and 1.25 bisoprolol daily. I have a resting heart rate of around 46 bpm .
Since the cardioversion I have been having some ectopic heart beats .
On return home my GP has recommended I increase the flecainide to 100 mg twice daily until I see cardiologist .
Does anyone take this dose of flecainide. I am worried about side effects on the higher dose
