User Comments about Tikosyn
22 Jun 2016 I am concerned about this medicine because I still have irregular heartbeats, a pulse rate that varies from low sixties to mid nineties, what I will need to do should I need to stop taking this drug.

22 Jun 2016 If've been taking Tikosyn for 4 months. Experiencing dizziness, anxiety, and bladder infection requiring antibiotics---four episodes at this time. Also experience a lack of energy, apathy, and motivation for activies previously enjoyed.

29 Nov 2015 I finally found a medicine that helps with my irregular heart beats. My A/V node doesn't work and I've had multiple ablations and pacemaker implanted. I started having tachycardia sand PVCs. I was going in for another ablation when my doctor mentioned Tikosyn I have been on every heart med my doctors could think of but nothing worked. However, I need a higher dosage and I can't because my QT interval is too high. Tikosyn drug interactions are off the charts and I'm having some not so fun side effects. However, the pros out weigh the cons at this point.
