Taking dilitiazem 120mg 1xday, raising heart rate to 125+.Bp got higher.Same thing when i took metoprolol. Taking for arrythmias.Suggestions to try?
Depends: It depends on the type of arrythmia. In general, diltizem dose can be increased above 120, metoprolol can be gradually increased. Verapamil or Carvedilol can be considered. If the arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, could also consider digoxin. Some can be taken in combination. Need to make sure there is not other underlying cause for fast heart rate such as high thyroid, anemia, or dehydration. ...Read more

They cancelled my heart CTA and sent me home. Couldn't get my heart rate to 60 or less, even using IV metoprolol. Couldnt they have still done it?
If the: Heart rate is too high, the cardiac motion creates an artifact that distorts anatomic detail and can make the scan essentially useless. The higher the heart rate, the worse it is.
