I had 36,000 PVC's and my Dr. started me on Flecainide. I now only have 127.  This drug has worked very well for me in both getting my PVC's way down and I don't seem to get any side effects other than I do experience tiredness and occasional depression.  I'm going to try to cut back on it now that I'm feeling so good.
