no..meds are only prescribed to serious cases..if it's not serious u don't need meds..ur doctor knows what he's doing..but do take good care of ur heart..eat healthy n balanced meals..include more veges in ur diet and eat less fatty and oily foods..u must also exercise regularly..do cardio-type exercises..it'll help ur heart alot..

Hi, I am trying to establish what may be causing an irregular heartbeat. I have had the condition for a couple of years now and have consulted my cardiologist and GP at various times on the matter. A halter monitor test was undertaken and while some irregular heartbeats were seen, they did not seem to concern the cardio much. He did offer me a low dosage of Lanoxin ( I think that is what it is called) only if I felt the need to take it. At this stage I have not taken it but am taking an aspirin a day as a blood thinner. I am on a blood pressure tablet and on average my BP is 122/85. The irregular heartbeat can happen at any time and can last for days at a time on and off. What could be causing it and is there a permanent remedy to stop it? Thanks A Little Concerned.
