I saw a different cardiologist in the same group yesterday. He said on my original 2 week event monitor, that I experienced > 200 episodes of SVT. The original doc downplayed it and said I only had a few milliseconds so I refused the beta blocker as my heart rate and BP are low normal. Ended up in the hospital in a monitored bed last Christmas Day. Accepted metoprolol succinate. 25 mg lowered my pulse and BP too much but 12.5 has been a miracle drug for me. No arrhythmia since August. I was originally advised, like most of us, to take the first available appt.

Did you ever find the cause to your SVT?
