I have been taking Flecainide for 2 weeks now and discovered my heart rate has worsened, it goes to anything from 62 - 144 when resting. Higher if do any work 120-175 bouncing This now lasts for a couple of days after training on a Saturday until Tuesday I do unfortunately drink at the weekend white wine especially. I know tabets and drink don't mix but maybe i'm thinking its a Dehydration Problem Does anybody take Felecainide?
