I have taken 225mg of this drug 3 times a day for 4 years. It has worked very well and although expensive is still much cheaper than Rythmol. The only side effect I noticed was constipation.

I have been taking this drug 2x's a day (150mg) for two years since a singular AF occurance sent me to the emergency room for conversion. I am scared to take it, and scared NOT to take it. At first, the cardio put me on Rythmol, which costs over 700$! After research, I found that propafenone was the generic and costs only $50 for a 90 day supply. So, I asked him to prescribe it for me, so I ta...

I use Propafenone Oral on a "As Needed" basis, it stopped my A-fib within 30 minutes on the first and only time of taking it (300 mg Tabs). I keep some with me at all times,as the Dr calls it "The Pocket Pill". It works for me.

I would never use this again. Used it for three months, was reluctant to take it due to the nasty side effects and was told they only pertain to the elderly, took it for two months, suffered cardiac arrest from a long QT time it gave me. This was verified by the heart hospital, would never ever take it again. Woke up out of a coma a week and a half later and lucky to be alive!

I use this medication for , what the cardiologist calls, the pill in the pocket. I take it as needed when in A-Fib. Within about 1 to 2 hours, my heart rythmm is back to normal. It does leave a metallic taste for about 24 hrs. Sure beats going to the ER to get cardioverted.

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.
