Tikosyn for A Fib

Posted by Berge Markarian @bergem, Oct 6, 2017

I went to Mayo Clinic in MN, for evaluation of my dyspnea and A Fib.I was told that Ablation success rate is low and the complications rate are high ( possibly due to my age 90 , CAD, 10 coronary stents ,etc), so they suggested Tikosyn which I am taking for 2 weeks now . Feeling better since, able to do treadmill for 35 min and 1.5 miles daily. Does anyone have any history of Tikosyn treatment?
Thank you

Hi Didi,
Here’s some information about Tikosyn (dofetilide): http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/dofetilide-oral-route/description/drg-20063516

I’m tagging @2880 @vermontrob @crazyheart @predictable, and hope they will join in with some more information. Since Tikosyn belongs to the group of medicines known as antiarrhythmics, I’d also like to introduce you to @woodieryan @jimana who have written about antiarrhytmic drugs; do you have any insights to share with @bergem?
