Mon, Jan 6 4:34am · Long QT Syndrome in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Hello@Lisa Lucier, I had prolonged QT-interval, it is drug-related, while on Cardarone (100mg on alternate days) with only asymptomatic bradycardia, for 4-5 years. Recently, it has been stopped. My indication was multiple PVCs on EKG. The there is no ventricular atypia,
and HR/PR=50-60/min. I am also on Carvedilol 10mg, for stabilizing BP, at 140/70, so bradycardia is continuing(for 2 years).Thanks for
an interesting post.

IT IS SOMETIMES CAUSED BY MEDICATION SIDEEFFECTS, AS IN MY CASE, THO' THERE
IS CONGENITAL PROLONGATION OF QT-INTERVAL. AN ELECTROPHYSIOLOGIST IS MORE
APPROPRIATE TO CONSULT FOR FOLLOW-UP. I AM HAPPY THAT THE PATIENT IS STABLE
WITH PACEMAKER. I AM A GENERAL PHYSICIAN, BUT NOT AS INDICATED , HAVE
SIGNIFICANT EXPERIENCE IN THIS PROBLEM. I HAD TO DISCONTINUE A
MEDICATION, TO CORRECT QT-INTERVAL, THO' ASYMPTOMATIC WITH SINUS
BRADYCARDIA (SLOW HEART RATE), PULSE RATE RANGING FROM 55-60/MINUTE…DR

May 4, 2018 · Complications with Statins in Heart & Blood Health

I had different statins in doses of 10mg – 40mg , except for minimal muscular pains, no other signs or symptoms. Presently, on Rosuvastatin 10mg , with
mostly normal and favourable reports of lipid profile, for more than 6 months to one year. As read about Coenzyme Q10 can help in relief of muscular pains,
trying to use though seems expensive, in India with a few limited brands available.

Apr 30, 2018 · Feeling Skipped Beats, Palpitations: What could this possibly be? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I had pvc's for about 5 years, on holter/s and controlled well with Cordarone 100mg, asymptomatic mostly, recently due to minimal no.of
them to zero- level, on random ecg/s, on monthly basis, for 3 months and prolonged QT 537 ms, reduced the dose of medication
(cordarone) to 50 mg, and QT 444 ms, is reduced interval and I feel better. This is only as a preventive measure to avoid any episode
of v.tach ; progress has been rewarding, with significant reduction of the risk.I have more of sinus bradycardia, with HR/PR of 55-60/min, prolonged PR-interval (237 ms), I am clinically stable.

Agree with Teresa. CHF is chronic and any progress, is helpful.
