I was recently told that I have nothing to worry about with my heart but when I received a copy of my ECG online I see a number of odd beats and am looking for a second opinion. My heart feels like it stops for a second and then there is a number of fast beats followed by a very strong one. I am currently taking Effexor 37.5x3, Wellbutrin XL 150 mg and Saxenda 3 mg.
I have gone through your ECG (electrocardiogram) results (attachment removed to protect patient identity). They are PVCs (premature ventricular contractions). Majority of the time, they are of benign origin and does not pose a threat. Some of the common causes could include taking tobacco, alcohol, caffeine. High blood pressure, anxiety and rarely heart diseases could also be a cause. In your case the Effexor you are using could make you experience more PVCs. Should it continue to occur more frequently, you might have to talk to your doctor to adjust the dosage or substitute it. You will be fine, no need for worry.
