Is it safe to take propranolol for Wolff Parkinson white syndrome? It works well & decreased SVT episodes by 80% already.

Is it safe to take propranolol for Wolff Parkinson white syndrome? It works well & decreased SVT episodes by 80% already.

Generally no: This is a very interesting question. If you truly have WPW, your management (& answer to such a question) should be by your cardiologist.

However, the modern treatment for WPW w/ frequent SVT is ablation. ...Read more
