Interesting... I think you're seeing the capillaries on the back or the eye. Anyway, congratulations on the ablation. I hope it sticks for you!

My electrophysiologist knew I was on the beta blocker Metoprolol Tartrate and requested that I abruptly stop the medication 3 full days prior to my procedure. His reasoning to me was the half life of Metoprolol is rather short, 5 hours or so, and there is no latency with the drug. When it's gone, it's gone and with it go the effects of the drug. ...

I had mine done one week before Thanksgiving. I went back to work on Tuesday, and then drove 250 Thanksgiving morning to our kids houses.

It had little to no effect on my PVC's It had no effect whatsoever in controlling my SVT. I was on 100mg per day It had no sexual side effects It did slow my resting pulse It did lower my blood pressure I believe it made converting my SVT episodes easier.

I know we have spoke before on a different thread regarding what you're feeling. Has what you're feeling been confirmed by a cardiologist as SVT? The low end of SVT is usually 160 and rises from there. You can get your heart to 120 by climbing a flight of steps, so I seriously doubt that these episode of increase heart rate will have a negative i...
