i don't really notice a decrease in my palps....but my anit-depressants makes me calm also...i would throw myself in constant panic attacks over my darn heart....so i think the meds really do help...hopefully my heart will settle down soon and then i can get off the meds...but if it helps with your anxiety then i would advise to stay on them a bit longer...cause you got to focus on living other than your heart....!
In my case, my doctor prescribed me Lexapro as an attempt to help reduce anxiety / depression that we felt was caused by the PVCs I was experincing. I took it as prescribed.
After 3 weeks of not noticing any reduction in PVCs; nor, did I like the side effects of Lexapro, I discontinued it (per my doctor's instructions).
Of course, I wasn't on Lexapro long enough to receive the "full" therapeutic effects/benefits either. So, I do not know if it would have helped reduce the PVCs in the long run or not.
I hope you feel better soon.
Blessings and Pleasant thoughts to you.
lexapro may haved helped reduce my palps. I sure feel alot more normal. It does take several weeks to kick in fully. If you quit it, reduce dosage very gradually.
