Here's the question- I am wondering if these PVC's and PAC's that I have been experiencing in the past 2 months have to do with suddenly stopping the metoprolol that I was on for my high blood pressure. I don't recall ever getting them before and now they occurring constantly.. I was taking metoprolol 25 mg twice a day and then my dr discontinued it because I found out that I was pregnant. Now I am taking something else for the blood pressure that is safe to take in pregnancy. It just *****, because suddenly they came out of nowhere and I am trying to find a reason for them.are literally driving me insane- it's all I think about.. I sure sounds like your heart came dependent on the BB, and didn't like you stopping it. I don't know if they are going to kill me or not. I don't know, but I'd think that after a period of time your heart rhythm would adjust to the absence of the BB. I'm 30 years old, am I supposed to take these forever?? Tomorrow I go to the cardiologist and they'll do an echo...maybe I'll find out whats going on. I've read that you should not stop taking Beta Blockers suddenly, b/c it could increase risk of complications. My pulse drops too low sometimes so my doctor says to cut back..cut a 25 mg pill in half and my heart notices the difference right away and then my pulse is too high.

A 50 year-old male healthy athlete has the new problem of occasional periods of premature beats. He (or she, it doesn’t matter) has visited the doctor and an ECG shows PVCs, or premature ventricular contractions. Could they be 1) consequence of (chronic) exercise or 2) related in some way to overtraining. PVCs are probably the second most common rhythm problem I see. Otherwise the history, exam, ECG, ECHO and electrolytes are normal. Atrial arrhythmia, including AF and atrial flutter are the most common. This image shows PVCs (beats 2, 4, 6 etc) occurring in what we call a bigeminal pattern. Atrial or ventricular beats that appear in an every other beat pattern are referred to as bigeminy. Fisch called it “boom-boom-pause.” Here are six bullet points on PVCs: (No doubt, if you wanted to be an engineer about it, there would be many more. There is an old rule–it’s called the rule of bigeminy. Basically, the long-short intervals of PVCs tend to promote themselves. Understanding PVCs is harder than understanding cyclists. The point is that PVCs often occur in a bigeminal pattern. If I had only one adjective for PVCs, I would use capricious. In an overwhelming majority of patients, especially those with a structurally normal heart, PVCs are benign. Chan 0000-00-00 Abstract Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are frequently encountered, and management is determined by symptoms, precipitating factors, and the presence of underlying cardiac disease. No treatment is indicated in patients with asymptomatic PVCs in absence of cardiac disease. Symptomatic patients without cardiac disease may be managed by identifying and correcting reversible causes. In patients with cardiac disease, management includes treating the underlying cardiac disease to improve both symptoms and prognosis. Introduction Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) are frequently encountered in the primary care setting. The clinician is often faced with the dilemma of finding PVCs in a patient and deciding whether the PVCs should be treated. Management of PVCs includes discernment of associated heart disease and other predisposing conditions prior to the decision to specifically treat the PVCs.
