Tachycardia!

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone take any medication for Tachycardia?, my cardiologist had me on Atenolol in the beginning but has taken me off this recently as it is Autumn here in Australia, and it was effecting my Raynauds.

 

I am now on a new drug which has recently come to Australia called Coralan, it is not as effective as the Beta Blocker, but I am to be on it during the colder months.

 

My Cardiologist refuses to put me on any other medication.

 

Many thanks

Celia

Celia,

I was on propafenone for a couple of years. It worked, but every 3 months I had to increase the dose. A couple of months after being on maximum dosage (225 mg, 3 times/day), my fibrillations got worse. I also hated the side effect of getting dizzy everytime I bent over to pick something off the floor. I was taken off it and now I'm on nothing. Can't use beta blockers because of the Raynaud's. So I'm on coumadin and for now, just living with chronic atrial fibrillations. UGH!

 

Big Hugs,

I was on Toprol for awhile, but my blood pressure, already being low, shot down even more, so they took me off. Now I just live with it. My rythym is always a mess, but since I have no symptoms associated with it and don't even know when it is occurring, the doctors don't seem that concerned.
