In January I had an EP study done that didn't give the doctors any of the PVCs.

Hi Rhonda.... I also have PVC's. Close to 1000 in a 24 hour period. I rarely feel them unless I am stressed or really tired. I can be rather paranoid sometimes when it comes to checking my pulse....LOL

Oh, dear Rhonda, how wonderful it is to see you!


The other Rhonda is correct in that

Wow, 1,000 within 24 hours?! Just wanted you to know that I also take Metropolol.

I just started taking metoprolol. Does it work? It's for my frequent and intense PVCs.

Thanks

Hi Rhonda - I'm sorry it's taken me a minute to get back to you.

Thanks Geri - I guess I'm just going to have to suck these things up.

I started off with metropolol, it didn't work for me so they switched me to something called flecainide.
