How have you been coming off Flecanide after Ablation

Posted , 2 users are following.

I just wondered what experiences other had coming off Flecanide after Ablation.   I had a 2nd Ablation in January and the plan was to take Flecanide for 2 months and stop.   As much as I don't like taking tablets I was feeling that the Flecanide were controlling my AF that is before and after Ablation so I have taken then for 2 months and then will reduce to NIL over a month.     I just wondered if others had successfully come off them or what experiences they had?

    I had AF and SVT.  I was intolerant to high doses of Flecanide and 150mg a day just about controlled the AF most days but with several pop a pill episodes and hospital admission.    It's a very long tale
