A lot of people on this board swear by magnesium supplements for PVCs.
I've seen posts where people have said that their doctor recommended 400mg (1 tablet) of Magnesuim Oxide (not sulfate or citrate) taken 1/day.
It is soluble in water, which means your body will get rid of any excess magnesium ... It is a safe thing to try with minimal side effects....
Even though many cardiologists suggest magnesiuim before beta blockers, you should, if you are interested in this route, consult with your doc about it. Also do NOT quit the beta blocker cold turkey without talking to your doctor. It's one of the drugs that one should be "weaned" off of, depending on dose, how long you've been on it and any other health issues you might have.
The concept of magnesium makes sense because the heart's electrical system is controlled by magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium and other electolytic molecules.
You might even consider a calcium/magnesium combo. but again, shoot for magnesium 400mg. even in combo form.
