Can cortisone increase number of PVCs?
I've suffered from PVCs for some time and take Tropol 100mg daily. PVC's were under control, not completely gone but very subdued. A week ago I started having more PVC's, many more the usual; then I remember that I had a cortisone shot a couple of days earlier in my shoulder. I know PVC come and go but could this recent bout be related to the cortisone shot? and how long should I expect it to last if so?
