Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis

Both severe tachycardia, up to 180 and SVT can be triggered by an anxiety attack but SVT may have symptoms resembling an anxiety attack though. With just monitor tracing severe tachycardia can be mistaken as SVT but a 12 lead EKG should help.

DID you stop Zoloft all of sudden?
