Does bradycardia cause prolongation of QT interval?
Both bradycardia and use of medication can be the cause of QT prolongation.
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.
Both bradycardia and use of alprazolam, buspirone and protonix can cause the prolongation of QT syndrome.
Since this may lead to life threatening arrhythmias you should stop taking this medications and contact immediately with your cardiologist. If you experienced any arrhythmias you should go immediately to ER.
Hope this was of help!
Wish you health!
