Anybody diagnosed with PVC (premature ventrical contractions)?

I was diagnosed with PVC and was put on a beta blocker. I dont think the problem has changed. I usually get them when i am over tired. Also the meds have made me gain weight and i think that also is causing the problem to persist. Just wanted to chat with someone in regards to their symtoms

Hello Linda, Occaisional PVC's are really nothing to worry about. They are common and even expected in the super atheletes. The marathon runners have a very low heart rate and frequent PVC's. When you have to do something is when they happen enough that it causes you be be dizzy or light headed. Then they can give you a medication to help out. The other time that is significant is when there are a bunch of them connected to gether, this is called V-tach, (ventricular tachycardia) and then something needs to be done. Just follow your doctors advice and relax...
