I am having mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation . My lvef is 75%. Is anything there to concern ?
Is it ok to take Celexa if I have mitral valve prolapse & occasionally experience arrythmias - leaflet states to be cautious with heart conditions?
Yes: Celexa can cause a prolonged QT interval. If a person has a long QT interval already when he or she starts taking Celexa, it could cause a dangerous heart rhythm problem. However, Mitral Valve Prolapse does not cause QT interval prolongation, so generally, MVP is not a reason to avoid Celexa. Hope this helps.

Resting heart rate around 53 bpm. PCP says this is ok.Passed stress test, EKG ok.Slight mitral valve prolapse.Is this a concern? Worried!!!

Not life threatening: Chest discomfort, fatigue, shortness of breath and anxiety are common with mitral valve prolapse. The prognosis is considered to be benign with chance of complications at about 2% per year. If no complications (like atrial fibrillation, heart failure, infective endocarditis, or embolism - blood clots - to the brain), then not to worry. Do keep your regular checkups. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
