I started almost 3 weeks ago on 2x50mg per day and then was increase about a week ago to 2 x 100mg per day. It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster including a cascade of episodes in the first week and gradually increasing acid reflux issues which I now believe are under control. The current status is that I seem to be back near to where I was before medication, at around 3 episodes in the last week, (actually that’s still a bit more frequent) but I am finding that on the higher dose, these episodes will self terminate if I lie down very quickly compared to before I.e. between 10 minutes and 2 hours, compared to between 2 and 8 hours. I am hoping for better as my body further acclimatises to the drug, but I am curious about how it works for those who find it works, if you see what I mean!?
Thanks for any inputs.
Edit: I’m also really interested to know if anyone has experienced ‘mini-episodes’ of just 1-2 minutes where (it seems to me) that if I catch the first stages of the arrhythmia and lie down, then the Flecainide seems to (sometimes) kick in and do it’s job. Again it makes me wonder if the Flecainide is actually stopping any episodes triggering at all, but simply deals with them as and when they trigger - occasionally without me even noticing?
