Can i take jack 3d energy drink even after taking idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis ?

I take toprol xl 100 mg 1 x per day for Idiopathic Hypertrophic Subaortic Stenosis. I also have an ICD which was placed in 05/2002 and I have had 2 subsequent lead changes (05/02) and (01/09) and a generator change (01/2009). I know that I am ideally supposed to avoid large amounts of caffeine , however, I drink on average 2 Monster Energy Drinks per day. I am starting P90X soon and several friends take Jack3D for more energy during workouts. I was wondering if I should be fine taking Jack3D (AS INSTRUCTED at 1 scoop). I have read reviews that referece the increased heart rate , however, I don t know that the increase would be sufficient to involve my ICD. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Todd

I would like to know what was the pressure gradient measured across the LVOT. I would also like to know your heart rate when you are resting. I would also like to know why an ICD was implanted....did you have an episode of VT, or was it done after EP study, or was it for AF?
It is unlikely that the ICD will respond to natural increases in heart rate as can happen with exercise, etc. If it does, then the device needs programming. The ICD is usually programmed to respond to abnormal rhythms.
As a general precaution, I would recommend that you do not undertake lifting weights, avoid undue stress, do more of walking, jogging, swimming, etc.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You need to avoid caffeine as it puts your heart into overdrive but unfortunately due to IHSS there is less blood supply to the heart in periods of overdrive making it hard for the heart to function well, causing heart hunger or angina pectoris chest pains and breathlessness. I would recommend that you wean away from energy drinks and switch to safer energy sources like fruits like bananas, oranges, apples (10 times more potent than caffeine but good for your body). GOOD LUCK !!!!
