Anyone with Tachycardia Take Wellbutrin??

My Dr called back aftr I called having an emotional breakdown and he told me to go up to 450mg of the Wellbutrin. I am currently taking 150 in am and 150 in evening. He also wants me to take the whole 450 at once in the morning. So tomorrow I am suppose to go from 150 in the am to 450! What worries me the most is tachycardia. I was dx with SVT or IST about 6 years ago and have taken a beta blocker since.

Anyone else in this situation??

Re: Anyone with Tachycardia Take Wellbutrin??

If you have SVT I would go to an electrophysiologist and see if you are an ablation candidate. That often (depending on the type of SVT) means no more medicine. After 6 years why continue to suffer! I had an ablation and now I feel like I got a heart transplant. I can't even believe this is my heart...calm and quiet...LOVE it! Medicine is dangerous and put me into a ventricular tachycardia (adenosine) and that's why I had the ablation best thing I did in 18 years of suffering. So simple, a few hours and your whole life changes!

Ugh. I wish I didnt have to take meds anymore!! I did go to an EP...he was actually the one who said that he thinks it was "just" IST and that I was not an ablation candidate.
