I assume you don't have an overactive thyroid& I assume you've been tried on a beta blocker or a calcium channel blocker like diltiazem or verapamil. I also assume you don't have congestive heart failure as this rather new medication is used to treat it by lowering the heart rate. You state Corlanor controls your tachycardia.You'd go to the ER for cardiopulmonary symptoms including rates over120
