Specializes in Pediatrics - Developmental and Behavioral

Stimulant effects &: effects do not persist long-term after discontinuation. A tachycardia of 180 warrants evaluation by a cardiologist, who may use a Holter monitor to record your heart rate & rhythm for 24 hours. List all of the herbs, vitamins, supplements, & prescribed, OTC & holistic medications you currently take to share at the cardiac evaluation.
