Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer... Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your query very carefully. Some of the side effects of Flecainide (Tambocor) compare to Multaq are mention below: - Flecainide increases the Chances for major arrhythmia (as compare to Multaq), - Aggravates further the signs of Heart Failure (Multaq has no effect on HF) - Aggravates the signs and symptomsof Ischemic Heart Disease (Multaq has no effect on IHD). As you have history Of Ischemic Heart Disease, If I was your caring doctor would prescribe Multaq to Flecainide. Hope it answered to your query! Dr. Benard
