Has anyone taken this drug, Tikosyn dofetilide? Or heard about it?

It is an antiarrhythmic drug used to “help keep the heart beating normally in people with certain heart rhythm disorders of the atrium (the upper chambers of the heart). Tikosyn is used in people with atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.

I am a 68-year-old male who has been taking Tikosyn

and for the last three years to control my atrial fibrillation. During this time I haven't had any recurrence of a fib or any other arrhythmia. I have not noticed any side effects from the medication itself. Because of the occurrence of congestive heart failure while in atrial fibrillation, this medication has literally been a lifesaver for me.
