It helps me, also what helped me w/ heart racing after
drinking was switching to a calcium channel blocker, I was on toprol XL
NOT anymore, I take 180mg SR of verapamil 1 x a day and my heart
doesn't race all day anymore nor does it race when I drink.
Not a suggestion, just something that worked for me.
Those beta blockers can cause all kinds of strange things, especially
orthostatic hypotension (dizziness, lightheadedness, heart-racing) upon
standing or sitting from a laying position.
