PVC's/Tach - Flecainide/Tambocor

I have suffered with PVC's for many years. I take toporol daily and that seems to help when they act up. Lately, they have been stronger and closer together. They take my breath away and I feel faint. I went to my Cardio and they gave me a perscription for Tambocor(generic Flecainide). They felt this should stop or lessen the PVC's. I hate taking meds, but don't like the way my PVC's have been feeling lately. I researched this med and have read it can cause more harm than good. My doc says I'm on a low dose with a healthy heart and it's fine to take. I'm nervous because one of the side effects could be another type of arriythmia. Anyone take this med?
Good/Bad?

Re: PVC's/Tach - Flecainide/Tambocor

Hi, I have been having alot of PVC's for about 5 years now. Then when the skipped beats were increasing and almost non stop, and also felt like they were taking my breath away, I knew something had changed. My Dr sent me for a cath and found out to be an 80% blockage. Since my stent the PVC's have stopped. Listen to what your body is telling you. Have you ever had a cath done. I had all testing done and not one showed a problem until my cath which showed a blockage. Laray
