Comment from: 75 or over on Treatment for 1-2 years Published: June 22

Tambocor/Flecainide I think is causing my Mom to have dizziness and fainting spells. I have passed out before. I can't stand up without getting dizzy. My blood pressure is good, I am eating well, and I am not dehyrated. Would like to know if others have had the dizzy fainting spells?

The smallest dosage of this drug is 50mg. I am currently taking 1/2 pill twice a day. Even with this low dose, I still occasionally get a flutter or two during the day. Aside from the inconvenience of having to cut such a small pill, I have had very good results with Tambocor.

i have a fib. was extremely nervous about starting this drug. my cardiologist is on it and approved of it highly but all the other doctors are against it. so far no more a fib but very uneasy about being on it. these reviews made me feel worse but i am trusting in God.

Dr. raised my flecainide from 150 mgs to 200 a day. My pulse is about 55, however my heart is now beating and hesitating at which time I become light headed. I have atrial fib. I was taking 75 mg twice a day and did not experience these hesitations which also is causing me to feel extremely light headed when my heart hesitates. I believe that 200 mg. is too strong for my body. I have been on 200 mg. daily for 3 days. I take this at 100 mg twice daily.
