LOw blood pressure ?

hello, friends I been working 3 am to 12 pm last night I only slept 5 hours could this be the cause as well ? I took my metropolol 12.5 mg at 10 pm and 2 hours later woke up and took dialtrezam 30mg  when I woke up at 330 am I felt so awful ..like if someone hit me with a bat in my head ..lightheaded sensation and no energy it took me at least a few hours to feel better i don't have a device to check my blood pressure I only saw that my pulse was 79 and oxygen 95%  i don't know why some days meds don't affect me and very rare i do feel awful


Medication side effects or continuing arrhythmia ?

Cadaverock, if you feel your medication is causing you difficult symptoms, then please don't be afraid to discuss this with your doctors who may decide to review your meds or to monitor your symptoms.  Your symptoms could be due to other factors too, like poor quality sleep, dehydration or other conditions which can affect your blood pressure and heart rate/rhythms.  Our hearts are very sensitive to any upset, stress, illness.

I was very sensitive to many of my rate control/anti arrhythmic meds.  I see you are on a beta blocker, Metoprolol and a calcium channel blocker, Diltiazem.  Both meds can lower blood pressure and heart rate, so it may be that your doctor might want to check your blood pressure to make sure it is within an acceptable range?  Also because you have SVT (supra ventricular tachycardia) your doctor may want to see whether your medication is effectively treating any high heart rate episodes, because continuing episodes can certainly cause some of the symptoms you describe.  External holter heart rhythm monitoring might be recommended too, particularly if your cardiac doctors continue to see evidence of a fast heart rate on any pacemaker downloads?

But otherwise, are you doing better?

still after taking metoprolol 12.5 twice per day and after drinking diltiazem 30 mg 3 times per day..my heart feels more relaxed i feel good most of the time but ..those episodes of heart flutter or those extra beats that make my heart not in rhythm for a few seconds and after the ablation test i still get those episodes so now what ??
