metoprolol



been on 25mg metoprolol tartrate twice daily since january 9, 2018

have had a huge improvement of 87% on my monthly svt episodes

before metoprolol I was getting 30+ svt per month (long episodes)

in 10 months now reduced to 3.5 per month (shorter episodes)

if i get an svt that goes longer than 1 hour I take an extra 25mg metoprolol tartrate and it stops it...YIPPEE!

no more hospital visits thanks to metoprolol

my SVT got worse time for action!

how to stop SVT instantly

Apr 14, 2017 - 0 comments

drink water to slow down your pulse, then take a deep breath hold it til you feel like your chest is going bust then breath. it stops it, works every time for me lately. but remember to drink water to slow down your pulse otherwise it won't work

The flu



last august my mother got the flew, 2 days later she gave it to me. I felt so nauseated for a week, went to the toilet nearly passed out. then experienced a weird heart rhythm, thought it was SVT. kept starting and stopping, so went to the hospital they gave me an ecg and said it was atrial flutter. was going at 150bpm, so they put electrolytes/potassium in me they said I had a 0 level of electrolytes/potassium. gave me a small dose of metoprolol stopped the atrial flutter within an hour. of course still get my SVT, but the flutter was real scary!

so be careful when you get the flu. it nearly got me!
