Screening EKG: most important thing is to see someone for basics. If your last doctor did not rate you as high risk for heart vessel diasease, that can be reassuring - but most important thing is to get an EKG and figure out if you have other things like asthma contributing.

Not "safer": Pea protein powder has a certain composition of base amino acids as compared to other protein sources. The important thing is to mix it up and not use a single source chronically for weeks and months. Soy has come under scrutiny for its estrogenic and chemical containing compositions. There is plenty on the internet about this debate. It's not necessarily "less safe" - it's just your goal

It is safe usually: IF fleicanide is prescribed for you, it should be prescribed by a cardiologist. It is used for suppressing/treating certain categories of rhythm disorders. The best person to decide whether it is safe is a cardiologist who is trained and certified. But - in answer to your question: is a long standing medication in our arsenal and approved for use for years.
