Has anyone been given verapamil to use as a pill in the pocket to either stop tachycardia or stop pvc's ?
I was at the ER a couple of days ago with tachycardia that lasted almost four hours. 100ml of Flecainide didn't stop it so they did a chemical cardioversion and it stopped it straight away.
I'm always out of breath recently especially walking up hill or up flights of stairs so I was given a coronary angiogram test yesterday in hospital where a catheter is inserted into an artery in the wrist then up into the heart to see if you have angina or blocked arteries. The test was clear and I have no coronary heat problems but an electrical problem.
the EP wants to try verapamil either as a pill in the pocket at a full dose which is released immediately, or a slow release tablet which I would take every day to try and reduce the tachy events happening.
Jeannie if you read this post, I hope you are still in NSR after your tooth extraction ! xx
