Heart & Cardiology/PVCs and Clonazepam
I started having PVCs in November 2012. Non-smoker, exercise, healthy person. Had the Holter monitor, EKG, 4 week event monitor with no problems found other than a possible arterial flutter which I am supposed to watch out for symptoms. The PVCs come and go sometimes days without, sometimes multiple in a day. I am taking generic Lomictal for mood and Clonzaepam as needed for anxiety. My regiment is 1-1mg tablet in the AM with the Lomictal and then 1/2 tablet as needed for the rest of the day ever 4-6 hours. Sometimes after a strong PVC I will take one but it still freaks me out. On the days I have multiple PVCs I am a wreck with anxiety and fear. I try to reassure myself but it is hard. It is also hard on my wife after all the testing I cannot let it go. Could the Clonazepam be causing more PVCs as a side affect? It does not seem to have an affect on my anxiety. Neither did Ativan. thank you.
If you have a normal heart function you have nothing to worry about. I cannot comment on your anxiety meds.
