I had an episode of monomorphic v tach after taking prednisone a day and a half before. Got echos, mri, stress tests, stress echos, and an EP study and nothing abnormal has come out of it. Im 23 years old, and now im paranoid. I had a similar episode about a month ago, where i was given 60 mg of prednisone at the hospital, the next day my heart was pounding and racing extremely fast. Both times were after taking 60mg of prednisone a day before.
I was taking 'nutrilite ginkgo biloba siberian ginseng', after some days VT had occured, due to that rectal thrombosis, ICD was placed, brain stoke also happened. Because of that right side paralysis from which currently I am recovering.
I recently visited a heart specialist at Johns Hopkins and was told that I need to go on an anticoagulant because of my ventricular tachycardia. The doctor at Hopkins says Eliquis is not approved for ventricular tachycardia and says I should go on Warfarin. My local heart doctor suggests that I go on Eliquis and is leaving the decision up to me. Any ideas?
