    When my AFib progressed from paroxsmal to persistent, EP recommended Tikosyn. I checked out the reviews on this site and was initially turned off by some of the severe reactions. After going over the reviews a few times I decided to give it a try. Fortunately, so far have not had any reactions. Percent of time in Afib is 33% now.

    I have been on this for 3 months & it has helped me get back and stay in sinus rhythm, but I feel so achy at night in bed (I never had any discomfort before taking this pill). Don't know if it's related to the pill or not. Have not read much about the side effects.

    Comment:
    Tikosyn has been effective for two years for my chronic A-Fib. A troublesome side effect is the fatigue and brain fog. When I asked my cardiologist about this, he said this was the best solution for my A-Fib, but he was worried about my "brain." Does long term use of Tikosyn cause Dementia or Alzhimers?
