Have been on quinidine gl for about 11 years. up until several months ago, I was on 324 gm. twice daily. This worked very effectively. However, I went back into AF, and the dosage has been increased to 486 gm. three times daily. Is effective, but metabolism has dropped quite a bit.

This medication did the trick for me. I have had fewer episodes since being on this one. The doc tried several other meds and cardio conversion several times but quinidine with 2 other meds seems to be working.

This drug is "old school", however, I am allergic to the more modern anti-arrhythmia medicine. It is getting more difficult to find now. I have been told that I am 1 of only 2 patients of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation that currently uses this drug.

i was on this drug for well over 15 years and was taken off as easily as i was put on it. my cardiologist , when questioned, stated 'it's toxic' i don't feel one bit of difference, ( am on lanoxin as well)but have acquired type 2 diabetis but i am also on anti-depressants and had one year of chemo for breast ca. in 1992. so what was the toxicity? i had some diahhrea in the very beginning but that ceased early on. please reply, respectfully-H.

I had AFIB (SVT) diagnosed when I was 24 years old... I have been QuinidineGluconate since then - I am 69 years old... now I have been taking QUINIGLUTE 324 MG/TID AND DIGOXIN .25 DAILY for that period of time... except for a time in 1995 when I was taking Quiniglute twice aday on misadvice I have not had a severe occurence. Once in a while if I forget a pill the condition will comeback with a little 'flutter' to remind me that it's still there.
