I have paroxysmal AFib since 2010 and 2 months ago was diagnosed with CKD stage 3. Needless to say this was a real shock. I have the PAF mostly under control with Flecainide slow release 150mg per day. I have no side effects. It is so effective that my last attack was July last year and lasted for about 2 hours only. It was also very mild. However, I'm beginning to wonder if the med is bad for kidneys. It gets excreted via the kidneys, which is obviously not helping them. I am not on anticoagulants.
I would really like to know if others here are in the same boat and if so, how are you coping and do you have any advise regarding this double onslaught.
I would appreciate any thoughts.
