I read your brief post to say your arrhythmia has not been diagnosed: for example Atrial or Ventrical based, or both...or flutter or fibrillation.  Each of these may respond to Toprol (Metoprolol) so I agree that's something to ask about.  

How do you know you have a Mitral valve problem, was an echocardiogram done?

What is your current at rest heart rate?  If it is between 60 and 100 most would consider that to be acceptable and not requiring treatment.

If you stomach can tolerate aspirin I'd recommend you take one a day at meal time until you doctor advises otherwise.

Sorry to hear how anxious you are about this. Have you seen a cardiologist about this? Many people who experience tachycardia are often prescribed some type of Betablocker.

If you haven't seen a Dr yet, that should be your next stop:) Best of luck to you and let us know how it works out for you!
