Comment:
Have suffered from AF for 3+ years. Started with Rythmol twice per day, but began taking generic after a year with no difference in effectiveness. I suffer 1-2 episodes per year since taking the drug, but have suffered some weight gain and tiredness. Small price to pay for being nearly episode free. Current Dose Propafenone HSL SR 325 once per day at bedtime.

Have taken this drug at 600mg/day doses for 15years, have used it interchangeable with rythmol when it was not available. Not perfect, and have added bisoprolol, still have apx 8 episodes per year. Ablation has not worked for me.

Comment:
All in all this works for me. My main problem with it is fatigue. I take it three times again and the one in the afternoon is the one that causes the fatigue. That seems to be the only side effect besides weight gain which I hate.
