Question: I am undergoing treatment for vagal paroxysmal fibrillation. I take Apocard and I'm doing very well. Can I continue taking the medication for life without problem? Fernando (Ourense).
Answer: Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation is an arrhythmia that is also very frequent in young people and without heart disease. In these cases, the best proven treatment is Apocard (flecainide). If with this drug you control yourself adequately and you do not have atrial fibrillation crisis, I recommend you continue with this treatment, always under the supervision of your cardiologist. There is no problem taking this drug for many years.
