In brief: Can/bradycardia

There are several CCBs that will decrease PVCs very effectively, that when monitored properly will not significantly further lower your pulse.
It's a matter of effectiveness vs side effects. I take it those PVCs are causing you symptoms? If not, in a healthy person with normal anatomical/functional heart there is no reason to treat these...
