Hi, I posted a while back about having PVCs and flutters. After a 30 day event Moniter I was told that I have PACs, PVCs, and about 6,000 a day. That seems like a very scary number to me, but my cardiologist said it was still a low number. I have a lot of anxiety about this, and he prescribed me an anti-arrythmia drug to take as needed since I mentioned I'm feeling long runs of the palps happening on and off for hours sometimes. I'm already on a beta blocker. I just read about the terrifying heart side effects of these anti arrhythmia drugs and I'm really freaked out. He told me these PVCs aren't dangerous, and I get the feeling he prescribed this just to ease my anxiety when they're happening. It just seems like such a serous drug for that purpose. Has anyone else taken this for frequent PVCs? Or is this many PVCs/PACs dangerous or going to cause heart failure? I have no follow up appointment, and I feel like my cardiologist is sick if seeing me in there.
