For Ventricular Tachycardia: “My age is 63 and went through CABG (Coronary artery bypass grafting) in January 2018. Tachycardia started in March 18. Normal pulse rose to 125-130. High Cordarone dosage given in the hospital. The loading dose 2400 mg first day. 1200mg next day and then cardioversion was carried out. After that 800mg daily for one month, 600 mg daily for 3 months, 400mg daily for 3 months, 200mg daily for 4 months and now I am into 4th month of 100 mg daily therapy prescribed for 6 months. Never experienced Afib or tachycardia after the cardioversion. Holter test was taken after every six month which was normal. Went through other blood tests also which have remained normal. No other symptoms were experienced.”
