Is the drug flecainide good for treating PVCs?


Answer by  shastie (1601)

Yes it is. But, you need to be checked for heart disease before you take it for PVC's, because it can be dangerous, if that is the real problem. There are other drugs that are better for treating PVCs.

PVCs are an irregular heart rhythm, which can lead to circulation problems. Flecainide is used to treat these irregular heart rhythms and slow the heartbeat.


Answer by  Mrscmrn (1449)

Flecainide is an antiarrhythmic medication. It is used for patients that have prolonged periods of PVCS called ventricular tachycardia. Ventricular tachycardia is life threatening. Flecainide should not be used for other incidences of PVC's even if symptomatic. Flecainide should also be started in the hospital because of its proarrhythmic effects.
