1. Just a quick question about the use of flecanide..i understand what the drug is used for...just wandering if a side effect can be hypotension or bradycardia?

    I had a patient on it with low hr and bp but the doc still wanted to give it.

    Did you talk to the doc about rationale and what hemodynamic parameters s/he wanted to use for this particular patient? This is necessary and should be documented if normal parameters are going to be ignored. If this is not documented, s/he is just going to have to deal with calls like yours on an ongoing basis. Also - your pharmacist can give you more insight than we can. That's what they're there for - LOL.
