In your case it is likely that these are benign mildly frequent PVC's which require no treatment or further investigation if they aren't multiform, occurring in couplets,triplets runs or eventually are 10% of total beats in 24 hours. I'd limit caffeine& alcohol intake. If they're symptomatic, beta blockers can suppress them. An electrophysiologist cardiologist could evaluate & advise you further.
