I have been on flecainide since Nov 2008 for A-Fib. I was having episodes 3-4 times a week that would last 14-20 hours, very serious. I saw Dr. McKenny from Tulane and he prescribed Flecainide, one 100mg tablet in the morning and one at night and as long as I keep my Potassium levels up this medicine works wonderful for me.
