What happens if I don't take my heart meds. I have been given Diltiazem (not a beta blocker as I am asthmatic)... it makes me feel awful.... And doesn't really help much with high heart rate.
I stopped taking ditiazem yesterday, as I have children to look after...
I was diagnosed in A&E almost 2 weeks ago, TSH <0.01, T4 51, resting heart rate 110. I have been referred and am told I go to see an Endo in 6weeks. I have spoken to them and asked about Cardicor beta blockers as suggested by someone on this forum, but no one has gotten back to me yet.
Today I went to make my children's breakfast, and I took my rate as I was standing by the kettle, it was 147!
Is this dangerous? Can I stay off the heart meds until Carbimazole starts working? When would that be possible??
I take as much rest as possible, but obviously the kids need feeding! Is it safe that my heart rate goes up that much??
How long until Hyper suffers noticed a drop in heart rate??
Sorry so many questions, but this is stating to really get me
Thank you anyone for your help
