I have been on flecainide for only 6 days and got the same thing and more.  There must be something out there that stops the arrhythmia without making  us sick, but I don't know what it  is, and apparently, neither does my cardiologist.

I only got some tinnitus, but flecainide didn't stop my pvc and AIVR. Its ok, because its better with flecainide than without.

What dose are you on?  I am taking 100mg twice a day and i wonder if he would cut the dose down.  I take mine for pvc's which they told me werent going to hurt me but drove me nuts for years so they decided to try the flecainide. You would think in this day and age they could figure out a better med without all the side effects.

Hi, im on same dose as you.

Im take flecainide for nonsustained reentry VT. I've been on flecainide 9 month, and now the only side effect is that they dont have any effect. so... soon im starting a new medicaton; rytmonorm. The cardiolog explained med that rytmonorm is flecainide's sister, but combined with BB. I hope I tolerate it. have some bad exeperience with betablockers.

I really understand the feeling of going nuts.
How are you now? still taking flecainide? its still work? side effects?
How many pvc at day did you get?
