Answered questions

Can i take tambocor and monofeme?
I have been taking Tambocor for a year to treat svt, and now want to use monofeme, please don't suggest going to the doctor as that will be the next step i take but am curious in the mean time. Cheers Asked by Verdell Tutaj 1 year ago.

The answer is No you should not take Monofeme with Flecainide acetate (Tambocor). Flecainide is taken only for potentially life threatening heart rhythm disturbances. This makes it of profound importance that you do not take any substance until you have consulted with your physician. This includes prescription medications from other physicians, over-the-counter medications, dietary supplements, so-called natural substances, and herbal preparations. You may not need to see your physician as a telephone call to the office and a return call from the nurse should be all that is required. I am reasonably certain however that the cardiologist - and flecainide should only be initiated by a cardiologist - will say No to Monofeme. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and in all things may God bless. Answered by Clair Ennen 1 year ago.

Flecainide is used to prevent certain types of life-threatening irregular heartbeats. Flecainide is in a class of medications called antiarrhythmics. It works by slowing electrical signals in the heart to stabilize the heart rhythm. Flecainide acetate (Tambocor) is the focus of the book Deadly Medicine by Thomos J. Moore (Simon and Schuster 1995) which chronicles the drug's development, approval by the US Food and Drug Administration and marketing history from 1972 to 1994. It asserts that neglect and cover-ups on the part of the pharmaceuticals, academics and FDA officials involved in its approval and marketing led to the deaths of 50,000 - 200,000 people who took the drug. Flecainide was originally sold under the trade name Tambocor (manufactured by 3M pharmaceuticals). Flecainide went off-patent on February 10th, 2004, and is now available in generic version and under the trade names Almarytm, Apocard, Ecrinal, and Flécaine.

How long do you have to stay on Rythmol after...?
Hey my mother is taking Rythmol for her heart n stuff.. and we were wondering how long she has to stay on it after her heart is back in rhythm? Thankiez! Asked by Shae Barbo 1 year ago.

Rythmol® (propafenone HCl) is a Class 1C antiarrhythmic drug. It is related to Tambocor® and a couple of other class 1C agents still being tested or marketed abroad. Class Ic agents are indicated for life-threatening ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, and for the treatment of refractory supraventricular tachycardia (ie: atrial fibrillation). They are not usually used for prolonged periods of time, generally just to stabilize patients until they are switched to a class 1a or a class 3 agent. Both the FDA and the manufacturer do not recommend the drug for long-term use. If you're worried about the dangerous side effects, tell the doctor how you feel. He (or she) will hopefully shed some light on how long your mom will be on the Rythmol. For more info, see links below. I hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Stacy Allen 1 year ago.

Before taking fluoxetine, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following medicines: alprazolam (Xanax); clozapine (Clozaril, Fazaclo); digitoxin (Crystodigin); flecainide (Tambocor); haloperidol (Haldol); seizure medication such as phenytoin (Dilantin) or carbamazepine (Tegretol); tryptophan (also called L-tryptophan); vinblastine (Velban); a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin); almotriptan (Axert), frovatriptan (Frova), sumatriptan (Imitrex), naratriptan (Amerge), rizatriptan (Maxalt), or zolmitriptan (Zomig); or any other antidepressants such as amitriptyline (Elavil), escitalopram (Lexapro), imipramine (Tofranil), sertraline (Zoloft), and others. This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with fluoxetine. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor. Answered by Wesley Bielke 1 year ago.

I am on the ball today, Mr Nair you are very naughty, you have an advert for a book in that post and Yahoo doesn't let us do that... Answered by Zita Lacerenza 1 year ago.

Flecainide is used to prevent certain types of life-threatening irregular heartbeats. Flecainide is in a class of medications called antiarrhythmics. It works by slowing electrical signals in the heart to stabilize the heart rhythm. Flecainide acetate (Tambocor) is the focus of the book Deadly Medicine by Thomos J. Moore (Simon and Schuster 1995) which chronicles the drug's development, approval by the US Food and Drug Administration and marketing history from 1972 to 1994. It asserts that neglect and cover-ups on the part of the pharmaceuticals, academics and FDA officials involved in its approval and marketing led to the deaths of 50,000 - 200,000 people who took the drug. Flecainide was originally sold under the trade name Tambocor (manufactured by 3M pharmaceuticals). Flecainide went off-patent on February 10th, 2004, and is now available in generic version and under the trade names Almarytm, Apocard, Ecrinal, and Flécaine. Answered by Adrian Axline 1 year ago.

How long do you have to stay on Rythmol after...?
Hey my mother is taking Rythmol for her heart n stuff.. and we were wondering how long she has to stay on it after her heart is back in rhythm? Thankiez! Asked by Dixie Ultreras 1 year ago.

Rythmol® (propafenone HCl) is a Class 1C antiarrhythmic drug. It is related to Tambocor® and a couple of other class 1C agents still being tested or marketed abroad. Class Ic agents are indicated for life-threatening ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, and for the treatment of refractory supraventricular tachycardia (ie: atrial fibrillation). They are not usually used for prolonged periods of time, generally just to stabilize patients until they are switched to a class 1a or a class 3 agent. Both the FDA and the manufacturer do not recommend the drug for long-term use. If you're worried about the dangerous side effects, tell the doctor how you feel. He (or she) will hopefully shed some light on how long your mom will be on the Rythmol. For more info, see links below. I hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Chang Belwood 1 year ago.

A friend is taking Prozac and at the same time, glutathione. Is it safe? Asked by Denese Beaton 1 year ago.

Before taking fluoxetine, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following medicines: alprazolam (Xanax); clozapine (Clozaril, Fazaclo); digitoxin (Crystodigin); flecainide (Tambocor); haloperidol (Haldol); seizure medication such as phenytoin (Dilantin) or carbamazepine (Tegretol); tryptophan (also called L-tryptophan); vinblastine (Velban); a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin); almotriptan (Axert), frovatriptan (Frova), sumatriptan (Imitrex), naratriptan (Amerge), rizatriptan (Maxalt), or zolmitriptan (Zomig); or any other antidepressants such as amitriptyline (Elavil), escitalopram (Lexapro), imipramine (Tofranil), sertraline (Zoloft), and others. This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with fluoxetine. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor. Answered by Georgeann Beverly 1 year ago.

The only really difficult interactions are with muscle relaxants, and a higher risk of becoming dependent on bezodiazepines. I think Flexeril is the worst MR to take while on Prozac. Answered by Toi Siddens 1 year ago.
