Tambocor (flecainide) is prescribed to treat ventricular and supraventricular tachycardia (fast heart rates) that have not responded to other drugs and other cardiac anomalies.
Tambocor 50 mg treats arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) such as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) and life-threatening sustained ventricular tachycardia (sustained VT), paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, and atrial flutter. Tambocor 100 mg treats ventricular arrhythmias and paroxysmal atrial flutter.
Flecainide is a sodium channel blocker used to correct irregular heartbeats and maintain heart rhythms. Its main effect is on the upper chambers of the heart (the atria), where it slows signal conduction through the AV node. This regulates the electrical conduction in the heart muscle, which helps to restore disturbances in the heart rhythm.

Dosage

The prescribing physician will determine the appropriate dose and regimen. The recommended dosage for patients with supraventricular arrhythmia starts with 50 mg twice daily. If necessary, the physician may increase this dose to a maximum dose of 300 mg a day. The usual starting dose for patients with ventricular arrhythmia is 100 mg twice daily. The maximum daily dose is 400 mg. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
If a higher dosage has been taken by mistake, or if a child has accidentally swallowed the medicine, go immediately to a doctor or a hospital emergency room along with the drug package.

Some of the common side effects of Tambocor are:

  • lightheadedness
  • blurred or double vision
  • breathlessness, difficulty breathing
  • tiredness or weakness
  • fever
  • swelling from edema (accumulation of fluid in the body).

Talk to a doctor or pharmacist if these or other unlisted symptoms persist or worsen.

If a fast or irregular heartbeat is felt, stop taking Tambocor immediately, and talk to the prescribing physician, or go to the nearest emergency room.

The symptoms for which Tabocor is prescribed relate to disturbed heartbeat rhythms.

Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) is a type of arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm). It causes regular but rapid heartbeats that start and stop abruptly (paroxysms). The main symptoms are tightness across the chest, shortness of breath or feeling dizzy

 

Usually, the upper chambers of the heart (the atria) contract to push blood into the lower chambers (the ventricles). However, in fibrillation, the atria beat irregularly. The most frequent symptoms are palpitations, chest pain, reduced ability to exercise, and shortness of breath.
In flutter, the atria beat regularly but at a faster pace than normal and more frequently than the ventricles, producing roughly four atrial beats for every one ventricular beat. The main symptoms are shortness of breath, fatigue, palpitations, and edema.
  • When should I take a flecainide pill in my pocket?
    A person can take a single dose of Tambocor when arrhythmic symptoms start, and this restores a normal, regular heart rhythm. This regimen is call the Pill in the Pocket (PIP). It is sutable for patients who have paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (infrequent episodes of symptomatic atrial fibrillation).
  • Is supraventricular arrhythmia serious?
    A supraventricular arrhythmia is not as generally serious as ventricular arrhythmia. However, in some cases for people with arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation, there are increased risks of stroke because blood can pool and clot. Tambocor is usually prescribed in such cases, where there are serious and life-threatening possible outcomes.
  • Does drinking lots of water help with atrial fibrillation?
    Fluid intake is essential for heart health. The body requires a sufficient and consistent intake of sufficient fluids, mainly water, or it can develop an electrolitic imbalance. Especially when there iare deficiencies in the levels of magnesium and potassium, the heart's cells may automatically fire incorrectly, triggering an Afib episode.
  • How long can a person stay on flecainide?
    People how are prescribed flecainide may need to take it for many years. This depends on the decision of the treating doctor. Compared to some other antiarrhythmics, flecainide has fewer long-term side effects. For treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, Tambocor can be taken only occasionally (PIP) as and when needed.
  • What is the difference between paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and supraventricular tachycardia?
    Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and supraventricular tachycardia are different problems with heart rhythms, and can only be clearly differentiated with an EKG. Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a rapid but steady pulse. It is caused by abnormal electrical conduction in the heart's upper chambers (atria). Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AFib) is an irregular heart rhythm.
