Rated Atoken for Ventricular Tachycardia Report
I was very hesitant to take this. I'm 43 and suffer (and I mean suffer) from PVC's and SVT. They both are debilitating mentally especially. That being said I finally caved and tried this at my GP's recommendation. I take 25mg's per day. but I break the pill in half and take 12.5mg in the morning and 12.5mg in the evening. Night and day difference. PVC's dropped 90-95%. Additionally my heart rate never races anymore. Exercise tolerance was a concern of mine as I like to workout. My heart rate does seem to have a ceiling, but the ceiling doesn't cause me to get light headed. In FACT I'm starting to think that the Atoken is allowing my heart to work how it should instead of racing. Example. typically after doing a set of pull ups. my heart would jump up to 150-160bpm. Now it pegs around 130-132 and doesn't go above it. I feel much better while exercising. Time will tell but for now I love this drug.
Rated Atoken for Hypertension Report
I was dignosed with hypertension and Irregular heartbeat and was prescribed Atoken for both. Even though the Atoken was effective for both issues, the side effects were terrible! I dealt with tingling in fingers, insomnia, light headiness, dizziness,joint pain, confusion and sometimes I would lose my balance when I would go from sitting to standing. After 8 months of dealing with the side effects I talked with my doctor and I no longer take Atoken.
