Irregular Heartbeat (Arrhythmia) Overview

Heart arrhythmia (also known as arrhythmia, dysrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat) is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow.[2] A heart rate that is too fast – above 100 beats per minute in adults – is called tachycardia and a heart rate that is too slow – below 60 beats per minute – is called bradycardia.[2] Many types of arrhythmia have no symptoms.[1] When symptoms are present t...

spasmo proxyvon overdose side effect

please tell me the symptoms for overdose intake of SP tablet. ## Hi Sanju, According to an article I found on academia.edu, an overdose of Spasmo Proxyvon can actually be fatal. From what I've read, an overdose of Spasmo Proxyvon could also cause atrophic effects on the body as well. Some of these symptoms can include: restlessness, abnormal behavior, incoherence of thought & speech, convulsions, dry mouth, dilated pupils, irregular heartbeat, delirium, hallucinations, central nervous system collapse, and even respiratory depression. In case of overdose it would also be wise to seek immediate medical attention as soon as possible. I hope this info helps! ## Bhosdikey dose Kam karle mujhe bhi padey the fits.

Taking Sotalol for AFib

I was diagnosed in 2006 with a-fib and was on metoprolol along with another that I forget. In 2014 I had to get a new cardiologist, he put me on sotalol 120mg 2 x per day and 60 mg once per day. Then in 2017 my pulse was into the low 40s so now I have a pace maker. I still have a-fib once an while. My Dr. said it will never will go away. I also have had 2 abaltions, been converted half dozen times. All I can say about a-fib is you will learn to live with it. Because as all the Drs. say is a-fib will not kill us. ## Hello, Gene! How are you doing? Given the multiple issues you've had and your requiring a pacemaker to be installed, your a-fib must be pretty severe. If left untreated a-fib can be fatal, since it can cause poor blood flow, which could result in stroke, and cardiac dange...

Sotalol 120mg Teva vs Sotalol 120mg Apotex

I have been taking Sotalol Teva for over 15 years and picked up a new prescription at Wal-Mart and received a different brand (Apotex). I called and the pharmacist said they were the same. My heart seems to disagree and is hopping around. Maybe like drinking coke for 15 yrs and then them throwing in a Pepsi. LOL. Is it my mind or what? My heart is giving me a "not in my head" reaction. ## Hello Jack, I hope that you are doing well. After doing some research I found that both Sotalol pills have the same active Ingredient SOTALOL HYDROCHLORIDE 120mg but where the two pills differ is the listed inactive ingredients. Teva reportedly contains these inactive ingredients: - Starch, Corn - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Povidone K30 - Fd&c Blue No. 2 - Indigotindisulfona...

Flecainide 50mg one twice a day after having a catheter ablation Two and a half weeks later I m having the same issues as I had befor the ablation

After having a catheter ablation the doctor prescribed Flecainide and now three weeks later I'm having the same issues I had before the ablation. I'm having dizzy spells, fainting spells (although they stop before I fall) and flashes of heat thru my body. I'm also on Metoprolol and Pradaxa. ## Hello, Janette! Sorry about the problems that you're having. Have you checked your blood pressure, when you're feeling dizzy and/or faint? There is a chance that it may be going too low and causing these types of symptoms. Is there any particular time that they happen more frequently, such as when you stand or sit up suddenly? ## My blood pressure is good, and the spells can come when I'm sitting or standing. I did stop taking the Flecainide. Had one spell since. The doctor...

Is Rythmol necessary if you have a pacemaker?

My mother has a pacemaker but was never taken off Rythmol... We were wondering why she still should take Rythmol? ## It contains the active ingredient Propafenone, which is used to help prevent cardiac arrhythmia, and she should take it as long as her doctor deems it appropriate for her to do so. The pacemaker cannot do everything, so she could still be at risk, if she stops the medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, lowered heart rate, headache, and hypotension. Is she on any other medications? Why was the pacemaker implanted? At this time, even with the pacemaker, it is very important to keep her cardiac rhythm under control. In most cases, it takes multiple methods to help prolong someone's life, and to pro...

Side Affect Flecainide Blood in Urine

I take Flecainide twice daily and have just increased from 50 mg to 100 mg twice a day. I am experiencing blood in urine but have no kidney of bladder infection. Read that a side affect of Flecainide could result in blood in urine. Has anyone experienced this issue? ## Hello, DB! How are you? Is this still occurring?

amiodarone 200 mg tab zyd

Should Amiodarone 200mg Tab ZYD be prescribed to someone diagnosed with Amyloidosis? My amyloidosis is causing a very irregular heart beat,stiffness in my wrist, legs & jaw. I have taken Amiodarone for one day (3 pills) and stiffness appears to be worse & was unable to sleep. I have a history of being very sensitive to medications. ## It is normal to experience some side effects, whenever you start a new medication. The FDA lists those as being possibly side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination. Having only taken 3 pills, it would be very odd to notice a significant change, but we are all different, so the possibility cannot be ruled out. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

tikosyn

## OK to use viagra with this drug? ## This medication contains Dofelitide, it is most commonly used to treat irregular heart beat. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, low heart beat, low blood pressure, and increased urination. Condel, has your doctor prescribe Viagra for you? If not, you should not take it, since combining it with some medications could cause you to experience dangerously low blood pressure, and heart rate.
