Comment:
Since taking Tikosyn 250mg 2 times a day, my blood appears thinner. A slight cut causes the blood to run similar to water. Also now removing a bandage causes large areas of red spots like seen on people on blood thinners.

Comment:
A-Fibs were controlled, but regular bouts of malaria-like symptoms (102 fever, severe body-shaking chills) every three months baffled ma and my doctors until I was moved to another drug. Then I realized the connection! However, otherwise, it was quite effective.

first afib was 2008, cardioversion worked, no meds. second afib was 2013. given RX for Cordarone but WebMD research scared me. went to Cleveland Clinic, switched cardiologists, went on Tikosyn in hospital, cardio versioned successfully on first thump, and still in normal sinus rhythm 10 months later. expensive but alternatives are not good either. thanks CCF and my cardiologists.

Comment:
Five years with persistent AFib. Three ablations, multiple cardioversions, Multac, Rhymol, Toprol, and nothing worked for more than a few days. Tikosyn converted me to NSR in 8 hours. I have been on it now for a month. This is a miracle drug for me. I feel 10 years younger with no side effects. If you are fighting AFib, give this a try.
