Hi Summer,

I've had tachycardia off and on for years. A few months ago, I went through 6 weeks of straight tachycardia without letup, and then went through the most thorough cardio work up I've ever had. In the end they put me on atenolol, and it has helped.
Warm and gentle hugs,

Hi Pamela,
I was originally on Atenolol, but my Raynauds worsenend. I found though that Atenolol worked a lot better, than Coralan, which I am on now. Coralan is mainly used for Angina, but also has the side effect of lowering the heart rate.

If it's not one thing then its another.

Best wishes

Summer

Hi Lynn,

How did your 24 hour heart monitoring go? I hope you passed, but then again, I hope they found what's whacky, too, so they can address it.
