I have been until recently very active (hiking, bicycling,swimming, etc.<br>During the last 12 months I had 4 episodes of artrial fibrilation. I saw a<br>cardiologist who subsequently recommended Tikosyn which I am taking now.<br>Frankly - I don't like the medication. Side effects are: very tired,<br>chest pains, drowsiness, loss of appetite. <br>I am 70 and as mentioned above have been active and now this - no way! I<br>am going off this medication.

How long have you been OFF of it now. And have you had any side effects since you have been off of it. My husband has been on it for a little over two years now and is positive that the leg and knee pain he is experiencing is FROM this drug. Have you ever heard of this ??<br>I know a doctor would NEVER admit to it IF it were so !!!!
