Carvedilol...does anyone have experience taking this drug?

I had a cardiac ablation for frequent (20,000+ per day) PVC. The Doc thought he burned the spot he needed to as the PVC’s stopped for over 30 minutes. Now, 10 weeks later, I have just as many PVC’s.
He told me that he didn’t think that he was aggressive enough. Instead of a second ablation at this time, I will try carefully, a drug that I have never used. If this drug doesn’t work, I will have a second ablation. The origination point of my PVC’s is on the Aortic Semilunar valve. A very tricky place to be more aggressive.

Hello @razorclams,

Do you have any concerns about taking this med? Has your cardiologist offered you any other options?

Please know that it is always a patient's right to get a second opinion regarding treatment. If you decide to get a second opinion. As you have mentioned that this is a tricky location to be aggressive, I strongly suggest you go to a well-known heart center. They are often connected with university medical schools. Mayo Clinic also has a premier cardiac program. If you are interested in an appointment at one of the three Mayo Clinic facilities here is a link to get more information, https://www.mayoclinic.org/appointments?
