I have been taking 100 mg. of this drug 2 x day for 4 months. Seems each drug I takes takes its "pound of flesh" in other ways. Although I have NOT had an episode of A-Fib since taking this drug, I have had other symptoms which I can't pin down to the drug or others I take. Overall nausea (a sick backache?) and other "discomforts". Overall I feel I am better off with thi ... Show Full Comment

After 3 months, have suffered w/post nasal drip, constant coughing, swollen eyes. Have been treated for 2 wks for allergies. No good results. I feel it may be this medication. Am also on Lipitor, and Diltiazem for blood pressure. Any way to compare to others on this web site?

I have had A-fib for over 30 years on an irregular basis. I averaged one episode a year until June of 2006. That is when I started having A-fib 3 times a week on average. My Cardiologist has tried many drugs to control it. Finally in September he put me on Flecainide 50mg twice a day and I haven't had a sustainable episode since. I can feel my heart wanting to start A-fib, but it goes back int ... Show Full Comment

I will NOT go through any surgery as long as I can control the condition with this drug. I don't know of any side effects I c ... Show Full Comment
