    Since taking these 2 drugs I have had intermittent periods of acidy mouth with accompanying sores on my tongue. I also have periods of nightmares on a regular basic. I am taking these drugs because I have PVCs that were making me feel weak. I no longer have those problems but now have these others.
  • Does flecainide cause bad dreams (1 answer)
    I have been taking Flecainide for A.Fib and flutter for a year and a half and it is working extremely well in controlling those problems. However, I seem to have more bad dreams than before I started taking Flecainide. I am wondering if others have experienced the same problem. I also take metrprolol, losartan and a water pill for high blood pressure. I take levothyroxine for low Thyroid. I am 72 years old and have not other significant health issues other than the A.Fib. and controlled high blood pressure.

  • Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
    Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
  • Oxymorphone & amphetamine toxicity (1 response)
    ***WARNING***



    My 38 year old husband died in October. Toxicology and autopsy results showed the cause of death to be 'Oxymorphone & Amphetamine Toxicity'. Levels were at the high end of what is conssidered a 'therapeutic dose level', especially since he had developed a tolerance. He was prescribed both Adderrall and Opana by the same doctor, and had been taking both successfully and as directed for some time. Autopsy indicated he was otherwise healthy.



    I've lost my husband to this toxic combination. He went to bed; I awoke to life without my best friend. Please be aware of potentially fatal prescription combinations. Discuss these with your Dr. or pharmacist. Do the research, watch for side effects, voice your concerns - it could save a life.
  • Febrero 2014 - daniel alberto romero
    The dosis: Flecainida-Diondel: 100 mg (twice a day) - Pradaxa-Dabigatran Etexilato: 150 mg twice a day - Bisoprolol fumarato-Corbis: 2.5 mg daily



    sometimes I get a chest pain and other days an acid sensation coming from the stomach. I assign these drugs as to be the cause as I never felt this way before.
  • Flecanide caused high blood pressure
    After two months of taking 100 +100 mg Flecanide, blood pressure increased to 150 /95

    BP is coming back to normal after reducing dosage to 50+50 mg per day

    Will meet my doctor to discuss if flecanide could be replaced
