Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol pvc

Hello my name is April and I have recently been diagnosed with PVC and was prescribed metoprolol I wanted to know if anyone has taken this for there PVC and if so did it work?
I've been on metoprolol and pindolol. I wear an ICD and neither of those meds have been even minimally effective. My ICD records events whenever it has to intervene to bring the arrhythmia under control; thus objectively speaking neither one helped; but they did create the illusion that no events were taking place. One day there were 17 events (arrhythmias) and I never felt a thing.
What do Multiform PVC means. I wore a holter monitor and they said that is what i had so my heart doctor put me on some medicine to help surpress them but it not really working right now.
I also experience PVC immediately upon emotional stress like a sudden fright. Had a stress ECG a year ago and also had PVC presenting on it. Recently I went on holiday for 4 weeks and had a much lower frequency and severity of ectopics than I usually do during a busy work schedule.
I have a question concerning the significance of PVC, mainly multifocal and couplets. I am a 32 y old white female significantly overweigt, pretty sedintary, Stress test a year ago okay, excercised to 5.4 mets on a Modified Bruce. Echo 2 years ago pretty normal except for some septal enlargement but on the larger size of normal, and mitral and tricupsid minimal leaking, and aortic calcification small amount.
I've been dealing with PAC's/PVC close to five years now. They come and go in intensity but have lately been really active. I finally started to take Metoprolol 25mg 2x day. I haven't noticed any significant change in improvement other than maybe they don't feel as strong but they are still there. At what point do I discontinue the meds or is there some valuable benefit to a beta blocker as far as overall heart health.
Doctors tell him that it might be due to his heart medications. He takes metoprolol 100mgx 2, Nitron, and cipro. Are any of these pills responsible for this coldness. He also has been experiencing vivid nightmares and calling out in his sleep. The second thing is could you tell me the difference in the symptoms for atrial fib. and pvc? Thanks for your help and this wonderful service!
I am a 53 yo man diagnosed ~8 years ago with lone paroxysmal atrial flutter and afib. Long term history of endurance sports but nothing outrageous - running 20 miles a week since my teens. Episodes are generally less than an hour, but frequent - typically one every day or couple of days. Have been trying a "pill in a pocket" appproach - that is, I will take some metoprolol (50 mg tablet) if the tachycardia lasts more than 5 minutes.
However during the stay at hospital here I saw on the heart monitor when I get irregular beat it showed as PVC. This is continuously there. I informed my Cardiologist which he requested to perform exercise ECG and radioactive tracer to check the heart. That result too had no issue. My problem is I still have chest pains, left arm pain and PVC's during the day. This is bothering me a lot. I take Losartan potassium 50mg , Metoprolol 25mg BD, Crestor 5mg daily.
She wore a 24 hour heart monitor and our general practioner said it reported over 800 pvcs in that 24 hour period. He prescribed metoprolol tartr 25 mg 2x a day and scheduled her to see a cardiologist next week. I have a few questions... 1) Is this perscription necessary before she is seen by a cardioloigist (I understand it is used to decrease the number of pvc's) 2). What would be considered a dangerouse number of pvc's over a 24 hour period? 3).
I am 56 years old and been having pvc for at least 10 years and still have a hard time living with them. I receintly been to ER for neausea and chest pressure. they did a stress test and echo on heart. all normal. while I was in cadiac care unit I noticed on my heart monitor many "multifom pvc" and many singular pvc. Are these things to worry about? I seem to get neausea with these pvc, is this normal? I also seem to notice the pvc after I eat, is this a common problem?
I was diagnosed with PVC well over 4 years ago after having the gamut of heart tests run. I was prescribed 50mg Metoprolol. I took myself off. Recently I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and was prescribed Savella. After 30 days of Savella, I want back to the Dr. He could not increase the dosage as he was hearing an irregular heart beat. Today, I went to my family doctor.
I went to the family Dr. today to see what he had to ay about my PVC. He said everything was fine not to worry and keep busy. My cardiologist told me the same thing with out seeing me. The family Dr. wants me ot take xanax he thinks I'm to strees out and hight anxiety Does any one take that for PVC? What natural things like fish oil can help. I had a friend who took it and said it made her heart race. Any one have any ideas. thanks I need help.
I have a wonderful supportive hubby who I feel sorry for because I am always pvc sick if you know what I mean. Highest daily number is 17K. Pvc free off and on over the years. Had normal stress echo a few weeks ago. Have always had normal tests - ekg, stress, echo, chest x-ray, etc. After a bad bout in July 09, I have been plagued by bigeminy and trigeminy for 18 or so days out of each month since September.
I wore a halter which showed in an 18 hour period i had 15 pvc and 560 pac. Although iam greatful that they finally caught them on tape, i was wondering if i should be concerned about them. They have really stole my life away from me. They make me very scared even though my doc says they are not harmful but annoying. He talked about Beta blockers but i am very scared to go on any meds. Is they amout of pvc and pac enough to go on meds ?
Here's the question- I am wondering if these PVC's and PAC's that I have been experiencing in the past 2 months have to do with suddenly stopping the metoprolol that I was on for my high blood pressure. I don't recall ever getting them before and now they occurring constantly..I was taking metoprolol 25 mg twice a day and then my dr discontinued it because I found out that I was pregnant. Now I am taking something else for the blood pressure that is safe to take in pregnancy.
Should I taper myself off of this medicine and hope they eventually go into remission? I see some talk about their PVC frequency and they talk about them hitting "every once and a while". But mine are almost like contractions. I can set a stopwatch and they will hit about few minutes, almost down to the second. I want my life back and I feel like these little devils have taken over my life. I am currently morbidly obese (450 pounds).
Oh btw mine seems to be most prevelant when exercising EP/Cardiologist say its due to the adrenaline kick. Tried metoprolol, no bueno, now im just therapeutically ranting. So my main question is does it seem, to anyone else with nsvt/pvs, that right before they get sick do they seem to become more frequent/intensify? Thank in advance!
It has happened many times a day. So is that pac or pvc? Would the high dose of metoprolol not help with that? I have major anxiety over this and I don't know how to control it. It just seems to get worse.
My resting heartrate has been high today aroung 120. BP is 120/84. I also get PVC/PAC's which can be a few a day to thousands a day. I had all the teats done last year which showed no apparent problems. I am out of shape and I don't eat all that well. I'm 6ft male at 195lbs. Ex athlete from about 10 to15 years ago. My cholesterol is also high which I do take meds for. I also have heart health anxiety which started about 4 years ago after my father had a stent put in his heart.
This past year they occur more often, but always resolve themselves within 4 to 6 hours after taking 25 mg of Metoprolol. I had my last nuclear stress test in 18 months ago and my cardiologist said that I don't need to take another test for 3 years.I performed at 18 mets and my ejection fraction was 63%. I have hypertension which is treated successfully with a Lotrel 40/10. I am a daily runner and maintain a heart rate of between 135 and 140 during my runs for approx. 30 minutes.
Has anyone ever heard of a link between Marfan sydrome and PVC or the symptoms of PVC and Marfan affecting the same areas of the heart?
I consider a rest HR of 159 too high, it needs to be lowered. If you're at 100 mg of Metoprolol a day it may just not be effective for you. I take more, 150 mg, and still have a high HR, but more will push my BP too low, makes me dizzy. Makes it hard for me to get up from a seated position without some dizziness. I tolerate 150 mg much better, my rest HR seems to run in the 90s...can be low 100s.
Hello- I've had the PVC 'fluttering heart" feelings since I was in the 3rd grade when I noticed something wierd going on in my chest! I've had them from once or twice a day to several times a day, most days ever since. They usually only last a minute or less and are just annoying. I've been put on the holter 4 times and of course, my heart behaves wonderfully on these days!!!
Mine actually started after I was taken off of a beta blocker (metoprolol) and I am thinking that it was the medication that started them all..(I was taking it for high blood pressure..) I hadnever gotten them before. They are definately scary though...I wishthey wouold go away.
Hey, Just wondering how others got off metoprolol er? I was on 50mg for about 6 months, then was on 25mg for 6 months and my doc wants me to come off of it completely as I have had a reduction of PVC episodes over the months. Frankly, I'm looking forward to getting off of it as well, but have concerns. Anyways, what did you do to get off of Metoprolol ER?
Hi Lauren, After a combination of Flecainide and Metoprolol didn't work to control the PVCs, the cardiologist kept me on Metoprolol to keep the heart rate from running in the 160s. I stopped taking it on Sunday evening. The EP Study and ablation were on Wednesday. Of course everyone's different, but what little the Metoprolol did stopped working by Monday morning. From that morning on, the PVCs were way out of control.
They ran my blood, ekg, had me on heart monitor for 3 hours, and chest xrays... Evertyihng came out normal... The doctor did say that anxiety, and pvc can cause this.. My other question is, CAN THEY BE THIS STRONG, SHE SAID YES... THAT HER HUSBAND HAS THEM AND THEY SCARE HIM DAILY.. CAN ANYONE ELSE SHARE A PVC STORY SIMILAR TO MINE? I NEED SOME COMFORT IN THIS AREA PLEASE!! also i have had anxiety symptoms for almost 4 months now... im 31 and this yr ahs been my worst yr health wise...
Many of you have various types of PVC patterns: bigeminy, trigeminy, NSVT. Do any of those feel like your heart rate just crashed to half speed? Today I was at the store, heart rate dropped to very slow, in the 30's, felt light headed. I waited for it to pass (as I do all my arrhythmias). Had to hold on to hubby for a bit because I was pretty wobbly. Then it kicked back to normal rate (mine runs about 65 bpm). I had this happen a few times a couple of years ago.
