      I take flecainide, bisoprolol and eliquis. My heart has been perfect since starting flecainide. No afib, not even as much as a skip.

      Flecainide. It was difficult to find the right dose. Doc gave me way too much, and it caused me weird visual disturbances. He had me on 150 MG twice a day, I am now on 75mg twice a day. 50 mg twice a day will usually keep me from AFib attacks, but I take the 75 as prescribed. Metroprolol 25mg twice day to keep my heart rate lower which is most helpful during an AFib attack. I recently read that damage is done during AFib attacks when heart rate is too fast. Good luck to you.

        @Clarkie do you have to stay on flecainide forever or can you come off of it. What made you decide on that medicine and not Eliquis or Xarelto?

        @Clarkie The only "damage" that I know of, is an enlarged heart,Congestive Heart Failure(CHF),which is treatable.
