In brief: Not into heart

Medicines that slow down or terminate SVT are not injected directly into the heart muscle; however, some types of medicines that healthcare personnel may inject into your veins, to travel to the heart muscle include adenosine, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, digitalis, anti-arrhythmic drugs, and now, a recently approved medicine, indicated for heart failure, called ivabradine.
