Propranolol & Home Monitor
I had an ICD checkup yesterday, and I have a couple questions for you all!
I have Arrhythmogenic Mitral Valve Prolapse (SCA Dec. 2018).
When they interrogated my device, they discovered that I had an episode (arrhythmia) back in September where my ICD started to charge but it was aborted. I've never had a shock before. My EP is concerned about this episode, so she wants to change my medication from Bisoprolol to Propranolol (because it deals better with arrhythmias apparently...?) Does anyone have anything to say about: a) changing medications; b) does anyone have experience with Propranolol?
Also, they want to set me up with a home monitor thingy (Latitude NXT), so they can monitor how the new medication works and make sure I don't experience any other dangerous arrhythmias before my next in-person appointment in 6 months. I've had my device for almost 2 years, and I'm just starting to kinda forget I have it. But I'm concerned this home monitor will remind me about my device every day. Any thoughts on that? Any experience to share about the home monitor?
Thank you so much for your thoughts!
