Discussions that mention atenolol

Heart Disorders board


I came here with the same question on Beta blockers and alcohol. I'm only 20 and have been having the PVC's for about a year. It goes with out saying I spent some time drinking heavily while on the medicines (switched from atenolol to bystolic) while in college and noticed an increase in the number and severity of my palpatations the following day. Of course I decided it would be smart to lay off the alcohol, and I have definately seen improvement in my condition.

A question I have is... With me being so young, do I have many years of this to look forward to in the future? Can PVC's only be suppressed or will I one day have my old life back? Would appreciate any responses.
