Has anyone on this forum triggered an arrhythmia episode via a change in blood pressure medication?
After my 2nd ablation for atrial tachycardia two weeks ago, my GP, doubled my blood pressure medication from 5 mg amlodipine daily to 5 mg twice daily for a total 10 mg daily.
Reluctant to start immediately on a double dose, I took 7.5 mg at once three days ago. Several hours later, I experienced extreme sleepiness ( I had a 16 hour sleep) plus my arrhythmia returned upon awaking after a 4 hour nap.
On the second dayof the 7.5 dose, my blood pressure reached a low of 94 systolic.
This is my third day continuous arrhythmia. Was this a coincidence or a trigger? Thoughts?
( I have sent an email to my EP for direction)
