Tikosyn Torsade De Pointes Reviews

Tue, 13 Oct 2009
I'm on a regimen of Tikosyn, 25mg twice a day. I came to Europe, decided to stay and extra week which means I'll need more Tikosyn. I had someone ship it to me with all the necessary papers and it's stuck in custom in Frankfurt. So...is there anyway to get Tikosyn in Bucharest? Is it sold here? If so - where?
Thu, 02 Oct 2008
I started Tikosyn 3 days ago. I stayed in hospital as per the instructions regarding usage of this drug. I suffered no side-effects and my correct dosage - 500 mg twice daily in my case - was safely established.
Thu, 14 Apr 2011
Since starting Tikosyn, I have experienced muscle pain, stiffness, bradycardia,weight gain, fatigue. Are these symptoms common and how do you combat them.
