Ranolazine for PVCs?
Does anyone here have experience taking the medication Ranolazine for PVCs or other ectopic beats? What is your experience with it? Or, does anyone know where things stand with regard to the study cited below?
Ectopic heart beats: Finally some hope on the horizon? [Nov '18]
This YouTube channel is hosted by Dr Sanjay Gupta, York Cardiology. In this short video he cites the following study,
L Murray, Gary. (2016). Ranolazine is an Effective and Safe Treatment of Adults with Symptomatic Premature Ventricular Contractions due to Triggered Ectopy. International Journal of Angiology. 25. 10.1055/s-0036-1584880
I note by a quick lookup of Ranolazine that a potential side-effect is prolonged QT interval, which could disqualify some people. Otherwise, it looks promising.
Surely enough time has passed that we should know more about this drug and its use for PVCs. Anyone?
