Sounds like you have good advice.
I agree an aspirin a day is a good safeguard if your stomach can take the aspirin. I take my aspirin with breakfast every morning.
I suffer from AFib, not PVC, so I also take warfarin to reduce the chance of clot formation.
When any well-trained cardiologist gives you a clean bill of health, it's always a time to celebrate. :)
Though I've always heard the opposite, that PACs are nothing to worry about, because the heart is still making it's normal contraction, just that it's doing it more quickly. With a PVC, the atria are not contracting, just the ventricle(s) throw in an extra contraction. But either way, as far as heart rhythm disorders go, if you had to choose one among all there are out there, PAC or PVC would be your two best choices.
i too heard pac, better than pvc, but both normally benign and both scary too
My cardiologist told me that PACs are better than PVCs because PVCs can rarely induce VTach.
I have had PAC's for awhile now. I was on toporal xl and then metropl. I have developed an allergy to the Toporal. I was on it for about 3/4 yrs. I am now on day 3 of the Atenonol. Still having the PAC's and am very tired. Has anyone else developed an allergy to toporal. I can really feel the PAC's and it's horrible. I am thinking about calling the Cardio and trying to get in to see him to make sure all is well. They are very annoying and make me anxious. Any thoughts?
