I have lost over 11kg over the last 6 months and have now been AF free for around 5 months. No longer on Pradaxa. Can I also stop taking Flecainide?

In brief: AF/obesity

recent studies suggest weight loss helps prevent AF recurrences.
Keep up the good work. Your doc is the best person to recommend if or when stopping flecainide is appropriate.
