I've used Lopressor for years for rapid heartrate.  In November, 2008,  my pvcs started in full force.  My holter monitor captured about 2000 in a 24 hour period.  Now others in this forum have been much worse than mine.  Now mine have been worse before and after that holter reading.  That was actually a good day when that holter was on so mine is probably much worse than 2,000/day.  I haven't seen an EP yet.  I have an appointment in March.  When I went to my family doc with this,  we increased my Lopressor to 150mg twice a day.  That made me worse.  I was also on an antihypertensive, Hyzaar 150mg once a day.  Since  it became intolerable,  he switched me to Cardizem which was also intolerable so I wanted back on Lopressor.  That was the lessor of the two evils but he reduced me to 75mg twice a day and it seemed to make tolerable.  I still have them but I can cope with better.  The pvcs are not as bad or rapid.  So I would say, it was as successful as I am going to get until I can see this EP and get further testing done.  Now I hope you are not totally confused with all of this.  But it is a lot of trial and error to get the best combination.  Good luck with this.  I hope this helps.
