I have been taking flecainide 50mg x2 daily for Afib. along with metoprolol and aspirin. Have been taking it now for a little over three years. Have not had any further outbreaks of Afib! However I really would rather not take this drug, if at all possible. I have read that it does not help anyone live longer. My cardiologist has told me it I stopped taking it, my heart would race out of control. Yet when I have missed a dose, I actually felt better! I have also had occaisonal outbreaks of PVC's since taking it. One which landed me in the hospital in June. I had wondered if the flecainide somehow could have caused them. My doctor thinks it's stress. I have wondered how long you can take this drug before it kills you. How long has everyone here been taking it?
