I have been on Tikosyn - 500 mg., 2X a day since March and have gone from chronic A-Fib to normal Sinus rhythm. I'm doing well except that I have extreme fatigue about 3 hours after taking Tikosyn & can't keep going & have to stop & take a nap. I'm curious as to whether anyone else has this side effect. I'm not overweight, a non-smoker, but do have COPD.

Tried everything along with several different medications. Though scared of side effects, did finally try tikosyn last May and have been doing great since, but it sure ain't a cheap drug.
