Premature heartbeats are a very common arrhythmia phenomenon. Normal people can have premature heartbeats, but in patients with various heart diseases, premature heartbeats are quite easy to occur. Whether it is ventricular premature beats or atrial premature beats, patients often have a series of uncomfortable symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue, chest tightness and chest pain, which will not only seriously affect the patient’s physical health, but also cause the patient’s mental tension and stress to double, which is even more unfavorable. The control and recovery of the patient’s own disease, timely treatment is very important and necessary.
There are many drugs for the treatment of premature heartbeats. Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western medicine have their own classic drugs.
