Sat, Mar 28 10:17am · Atrial Fibrillation (AFib): How can I manage it? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I have supra ventricular tachycardia or SVT. It feels like my premature atrial complexes or PACs when it is happening. I also have very bad Anxiety and panic. I get scared because I am 72 years old and I wonder what's going to happen to me. I really need to get the anxiety and panic under control. When it's better, my heart feels better.

I have SVT…(supra ventricular tachycardia. When I get a gassy stomach, it will trigger it a lot of the time, or changing positions or bending over at the waist can trigger it. Right now I am on a Beta Blocker for it. First they gave me 60 mgs EX of propranolol It really helped the heart beat but I had a lot of trouble breathing right. They changed me to Atenolol and my breathing was better but it doesn't work as well on the heartbeat. I take 50mgs with my lisinopril 30 mgs in the morning and another 25 mgs of Atenolol at 8:00 PM

Do you feel the Klonopin really helped with the panic? How long were you actually on it? It sounds like you are on a light dose. Is that once a day. Do you feel you are completely well? If not, wouldn't it be a little risky to start tapering off meds? What does your doctor say? I have a tendency to try and taper my drugs too because I am so afraid of side effects and getting addicted. It usually doesn't work for me. Please be careful when reducing drugs.

I know how you feel Mattie. I am 72 and really get scared about the Anxiety and depression I have and if this is a new norm. I have had It on and off for years and use to bounce back from It. This last episode has been going on almost 2 years! It does seem like they would like to sweep us seniors under the bus at times doesn't it?

Mattie, are you trying to get off all meds or try I g to find one that works for you. Some people can't get off of meds and need to stay on one that works for you. They have a DNA test you can take that shows which ones do and do not work for you. In the mean time can your doctor give you something for the withdrawals. People usually don't have a problem getting off of Prozac. Did it quit working for you? How long were you on it?

Mattie, are you taking it for Anxiety and if so, are you going to take another medication in place of Klonopin and Prozac? I am having a real hard time treating my Anxiety.
