      Mike This is a new thread and dierdre said on the other thread about alternatives to flecanide the following .....

      I am having a cardioconversion and then staying in hospital for administer of Tikosyn ( an alternative to Flecainide - which causes nasty side effects for me ) Tikosyn sounds pretty nasty too but seems to be only alternative .   Hope that helps.     

      I did ask where in World deirdre might be not sure if used in UK?

    I was on Tikosyn for about 9 years, due to the cost and help from the Dr. I am

    switching to Flecainide. My cost jumped to $585 plus. Tikosyn seemed to work ok

    but no alcohol. Not sure why you would need to switch. I may have the same question about Flecainide. I am getting a lot of aches in my joints, hoping to get rid of the pain as the Tikosyn is flushed out. May not even be related. Any side effects that I need to know of for the Flecainide.? I've read about the side effects, but did not see anything new.

      I was on Flecainide for a few weeks with many side effects . Then , it stopped working. I am on Tikosyn now with few side effects and it has worked for 3 months .

      Do you know about the drug company gives everyone so you can purchase Tikosyn at much reduced rate ?

      Go online and get one if you are worried about cost- Best, Didi
