Thank you. I was in emergency for chest discomfort, that wasn’t going away over a few days. They ran a no. Of tests and said they did not feel I was having a heart attack, and suggested I just follow with Dr. so a few days later my Dr, had a locum in and she called me in, and told me that the ECG done showed this prolonged Qt wave. I was on escitalpram and she sent me on my way . I went to refill the prescription and happened to mention to the pharmacy that I had just been told about this Qt thing and asked ,is this medication safe. They said you should likely go back to your Dr. so… here I am waiting for a return appointment
My google research has me a little concerned. I was told it’s 490 (.?)
I am wondering if the statin I am on and antidepressants can cause this, will it go away if they are stopped?
