Not answerable: This is the type of question that cannot really be answered in this forum. It would obviously take a psychiatrist talking to your cardiologist about what the proper combination should be. There are many arrhythmias and many antipsychotic medications. The details would need to be known.

Aripiprazole: And other atypical antipsychotics can be considered amongst the safest for a case like this. Haloperidol (and other typical agents) is used sometimes, with caution. Ask your dr for a recommendation in this particular case. Good luck.
