Rated Lismories for Ventricular Tachycardia Report
I’ve been taking 25 mg of Lismories for 16 years to treat my symptoms. I’ve never had an issue until the past two months. Lismories actually worked great until now. Either I’ve built up an immune to this med or something has changed. I keep checking my pills to make sure the pharmacist gave me the correct ones. Slowly my symptoms came back like I’m not taking this medication at all. I take my meds at 7 a.m. and by 9 a.m. my heart rate is at 140 for no apparent reason. Not looking forward to changing my meds.. Hoping the extra dose works..
