Flecianide has anyone heard of it or been on it?

A year ago I started seeing a what started out to be just Tachycadia.They did tests and found out that I had a bicupsid aordic valve. And there is a small back flow. But the Dr was not to worried about it. I was also told that I had PVCs. I didnt know that I was having them. Now that I think back I may have felt some here and there. At that time I was put on Diltiazem 180 mg. I have been on that for over 6 months now and seemed to be doing good. Three weeks ago go I started having the worst feeling heart beats I have ever felt. I have the feeling that my heart stoped, pounding, flips, and also at times the feeling of bubbles in in my throat. I was also having a hard time breathing and very bizzy. I went to the ER and after a few hours they said i had pvcs and sent me home but to go see my Dr. So I went back to my Dr he ran more tests. On the ekg they did there it showed that I was having the PVCs almost everyother heart beat and that my heart rate was at 150. I was told that this was another type of Tachycadia that could be more dangerouse. They did a stress test it came back good. They did start me on a med called Flecianide 100mg. I have done a lot of reading on this med I am not sure if I like it. The up side to it is that I have been on it for 5 days now and all the pvcs are gone. So I just wanted to see if anyone has tried this med or knows anything about it. thank you

I took flecanide for some time but it was changed to another med to see if I would get better results. Sounds great that it is doing well for you.
