Cardiologist, Interventional 's  Response
hello n welcome to HCM......
i think its good to STOP amiodarone and calaptin but u should continue ELTROXIN as usual.
my advice to regular Blood pressure measurement. if ur 24 hrs HOLTER reports are normal then no need for any other medication for Ventricular ectopics.
good luck and wish u a healthy heart
