Re: PAC's & PVC's w/ Sinus Tach

I have the same thing: PVT's and SVT's. I mainly have the skipped beats (can't remember which that is), and don't experience the racing that a lot of people have. My doctor has me on metroprolol once a day (50 mg, I think). It helps, but doesn't completely eliminate the problem. I'll go days on end without an episode, then I'll end up getting them for several days straight. It's scary, because I'll get lightheaded---I end up coughing and that usually fixes it.

We haven't talked about the ablation that much, but I'm not sure that I'd want it anyway when I read about the possiblity of having a pacemaker installed if the procedure doesn't work.
