Unhappy Regular pulse, but lots of dropped heartbeats.

I know that sounds stupid, but my pulse is quite regular, if a bit low, but I do get missed heartbeats. Perhaps ten or more in a row, then it will start beating normally again, and I do get headrushes when it starts beating normally. Its horrible. My doctor has given me flecanaide, but to tell the truth im too scared to take it, as im already on beta-blockers, and my heart rate is quite low. I thought flecanaide was to slow your heart down, but if it goes much slower it will stop. Its not AB he says its ectopic beats. Has anyone taken Flecanaide for this. Its really horrible, it make you feel as if your head is going to burst. Thanks for any advice.
