Hi,thanks for query.Np dear this is not a serious disease.At times if you do not have any problem you might not need any treatment at all.In absence of any other problem you can wait till the cardiologist returns.If you have problem at present then your doctor can refer to other cardiologist near by.bye.

I have been diagnosed with PSVT for many years now and have been taking Toporal(?) for treatment. Even with that medication I ve had 3 episodes where I ve had to go to the ER and be converted with Adenosine. I ve heard that anxiety can trigger PSVT, but I ve also heard that anti-anxiety medication is not recommended for people with heart conditions. So other than an ablation (which obviously is the best solution) is there an anti-anxiety medication that may help manage the stress triggering the PSVT?

Greetings! I am 44 years old and I was diagnosed with psvt in 2009 . Adenosine was administered. I was advised calaptin120 mg daily which I took till Jan 2011. But a month after delivering a child I again had an attack. Again admistered adenosine. Dr advised to continue Calaptin.But also advised to go for EPS . As such EPS and RFA was done. I was fine and without any medicine but again in 2014 Jan I felt uneasy. Dr said it is because of psvt. I was on MetXl for 3 years and now I am on Diljem CD90. Please suggest a permanent solution to this.

I have been having these fast beating heart episodes since i was about 15... I will be either sitting down, laying in bed or in the shower and my heart will just start beating really fast. I believe i have Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia. If so is it dangerous to have?
