Day 3 at 50% the prescribed dose of Metoprolol. I had an active period last evening when I experienced a lot of PVC's and a couple of 7 or 8 beat runs of SVT. A couple of forceful coughs converted them before they swarmed the heart and drop into full SVT. I find I have two different types of events. I get these little runs sometimes when I can fell my normal rhythm beating underneath the SVT. They'll usually drop out on their own, or I'll give a hard cough, and it disappears. Then there's the ones where I go from 60-200 in what seems like an instant. The resulting rapid beating is hard and forceful and I can see my chest bumping in unison with them. They're the ones I have to convert with Valsalva. Getting down to the wire!
