Avatar f tn Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) is a broad classification. I had about 10 episodes of 140 BPN over ten years with no more complications than emergency room trips for conversion or conversion at home with propafenone. My particular type was atrial flutter which appears to have been cured by ablation a little over a year ago. If your heart is otherwise healthy it is a condition that can be managed (but certainly no enjoyed!) https://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn I am glad your test went well and u had a good experience with it:) I don't really have answer on betablockers. I am on metoprolol and do fine on it although my heartrate I feel is now too low as runs in 40s to low 60s but otherwise no problems. Maybe u.would do better on some of.the newer ones that they have. I can't think of.the names of.them off hand. Again am glad your TTT is over and u did well.
2203249 tn?1338994046 It is generally recommended that patients with cirrhosis undergo elective endoscopic screening for varices at the time of diagnosis and periodically thereafter if no or small varices are detected. If screening EGD reveals appreciable esophageal varices, a size classification should be assigned. Different size classification systems have been used over the years; however, a recent consensus meeting proposed that varices be categorized in only two grades, small and large.
1250319 tn?1268945572 1.) Is this diagnosis serious? 2.) Is this medication the best offered on the market? 3.) Can this condition be reversed? Is so, how? 4.) If I'm ever diagnosed with cancer, will I not be a candidate for treatment? 5.) Should I get a second opinion? Thanks so much in advance!
Avatar f tn The doctor told me that I might have had hidden tonsillitis and prescribed me Metoprolol. I was told not to gain weight, to be careful with exercise and do a stress test once a year; then I was sent back to my family doctor who decided to check my blood for anemia - I'm currently waiting for the results and making a list of questions I should ask my doctor.
Avatar m tn I dont't have the blockages that you mentioned - at least I think I don't - but I had shortness of breath from Metoprolol alone (as mklarson mentioned) and couldn't even walk up small inclines without having to stop on top of the hill to catch my breath. I am glad I got rid of it and now am on Lisinopril only.
Avatar n tn Stable angina refers to people with set blockages that cause flow limitation of blood with increasing demands such as exercise. Rest or nitro can relieve the symptoms. The symptoms are reproducible and do not vary or increase over long periods of time. Unstable angina refers to people with a plaque in the artery that has become unstable.
Avatar m tn My experience with a beta blocker (Metoprolol) found it did squat to prevent them. It did make then easier to convert. I got 3-5 episodes per month. Will it be successful? Well that depends a lot on what kind of SVT it is, and where it's exactly located. But the odds are in your favor. Stick around and let us know how you make out. It's a piece of cake, very little pain, and you're up and around the next day.
