I'd be very interested if anyone has experienced any of the above from Flecainide. My son's been on it for several years and his behaviour is very out-of-character - I connect it to the period when they increased his dose to 200mg twice daily, which is quite a high dose. They say he is young and his liver is metabolising it very efficiently which is why he needs such a high dose. He is very depressed and has short term memory issues forgetting to lock doors and other important things. He's 20, has had AF since he was 5 (very rare in a child) and has been through a lot. As always, docs don't want to listen when I suggest drugs might be an issue. We've tried everything and all they want to do is stick him on antidepressants (he's also on warfarin and Nebivolol - don't want him to take anything else.) Any other side effects out there? Thank you
