    I am using Mexitil for over 11 months since experiencing a storm of 14 shocks from my ICD following 3 ablation in my left ventricle. So far the drug has prevented further shocks. Iexperienced no problems following the initial 2-3 months of adjusting to this medication. I have now become dependent on this lifesaving medication and hope it will always be available.

    I was on Mexitil for roughly three months following my diagnosis with VT, and it didn't help much at all, and left me feeling tired constantly. Also, the three times per day dosage was extremely inconvenient and it was more trouble than it was worth

    I have been taking this for almost 4 years and have been happy with the results. I feel better and seem to have more energy. The only thing that I do not like is the tremors that I rarely get, they are annoying more than anything.

    Had a very bad Vtach problem. Was on Coreg and amiodarone for many years. also have a ICD. Stopped the amio and coreg. So far the Mexitil has worked very good with no side affects.
