Apo Flecainide How to Take

Flecainide belongs to the class of medications known as antiarrhythmics. It is used to treat or prevent abnormal heart rhythms in certain conditions (e.g., paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias, sustained ventricular tachycardia). It works by slowing down the rate of nerve impulses causing the heart to beat, and by making the heart less likely to respond to abnormal impulses.

Apo Flecainide may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Apo Flecainide may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Apo Flecainide may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Apo Flecainide for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Apo Flecainide, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Apo Flecainide without consulting your doctor.
