with 11 paddle hits and hard work by rescuers restoring my pulse. I now have a stent and an ICD, which seems dormant. Now taking Toprol XL
50 mg., 15 mg isosorbide (more gave me headaches) and 40 mg. Zocor. Also, a couple of baby aspirin. I asked my doctor what activities I can now engage in, and he said, "Anything." I'm trying to get back to walking, among other things, but find I can't get normal pulse rate response. Only getting pulse in the 90s while working fairly hard.
