Non-sustained Ventricular Tachycardia and hypertension

I have essential HTN, NSVT, Factor V Leiden, and have had a TIA of unknown origin. Past hx of pre-eclampsia, and migraines. My B/P can at times be labile, cholesterol is excellent, no structural issues. Have a Reveal Linq loop recorder.

EP & Cardiologist are working to strike a balance with meds, while trying to back me off of Beta Blockers which are at times lowering my HR into the 40’s and making me symptomatic with either a increased or decrease in B/P. Working on lifestyle changes, lost approx. 10 lbs.

Current regimen:

360 mg Diltiazem

3.75 mg Bystolic

50 mg Losartan

50 mg Sertraline (for perimenopausal symptoms)

325 mg Aspirin


Any ideas, or suggestions?

    I am so sorry that you are having to experience this. I can provide the information we have on tachycardia. However, when it comes to very specific condition questions such as yours, we really encourage you to work with your healthcare provider. I also want to congratulate you on the lifestyle changes! That can be so hard and is such an important piece of condition management. Please let us know how you are doing! Best Katie

    I agree with everything Katie said. Keep working with your doctors to get on the right medications and keep making those great life style changes. Have your doctors mentioned a pacemaker? That would be the only thing I can think of that you might want to ask them to keep your heart rate more stable.

    I wish you all the best and hope you'll keep us up-to-date on how you are doing.
