Need more info: No symptoms, no side effects from the medication and you are compliant with the medication i would suggest an exam every 6 months. But should you have chest pains even mild, shortness of breath and palpitations get to see the cardiologist right away.

MVP: Millions of people throughout the world have mitral valve prolapse with the majority of them having no or only minor symptoms. Unless you're having symptoms, a yearly cardiology exam should suffice. I'm not sure what type of arrhythmia history you have, but your cardiologist will advise you on how often you should be examined and when to have an ekg and echocardiogram as well.
