Arrhythmia and Prep for Colonoscopy
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with colonoscopy prep prescriptions causing abnormal heart rhythms.
I developed atrial flutter in early 2021 and have since had to have two ablations and one pacemaker implantation to correct symptomatic bradycardia. Between the procedures, I have had episodes of tachycardia, some lasting for days. Symptoms have been mostly under control for the past two months through taking a low dose of metoprolol succinate.
I've scheduled a colonoscopy and my cardiologist's office has provided a detailed medical history to the gastroenterologist who will perform it (in a hospital). I've just noticed that the prep prescription ordered by the gastroenterologist lists abnormal heart beats as a "rare" side effect and mentions (in bold) that people with heart problems are more likely to have them.
Of course, I'll consult with both of my doctors, but if anyone has any experience that they could share, I'd be grateful. I did a little web research and it appears that other preps have the same or a similar listing.
Thanks so much.
