Started Tikosyn 2 mo ago, find it's worked great for Afib but I get lots of side effects. Insomnia, anxiety and depression along with vomiting trouble breathing and diarrhea. The medication is difficult to get and not many doctors are certified to prescribe it.

I have been on Tikosyn for 1 month. Since beginning the treatment, I have had bloating and weight gain. Most of my clothes are no longer wearable, despite a severe restriction of calories (less than 1000/day.) I have had tingling in my hands and feet that wakes me up every day early in the morning.
