Bye-Bye Beta Blocker

Had my follow-up with my cardiologist, Dr. Kim and now that my thyroid levels seem to be getting better and I’ve not had issues with the heart palpitations for quite some time he is weaning me off of the beta blocker! Hooray and a happy day for me! Now I get to delete another pill off my med list. He says to keep my meds on hand in case that I may start having palpitations again, but feels that because I’ve had to be kept so suppressed, the thyroid levels were the major culprit in why I started having these issues in the first place. So I will only need to follow-up with him as needed. I will miss coming in to see him as he always makes me laugh and puts a smile on my face. However, tiny little pill it has been real, but it’s time to say bye-bye and I hope to never have to see you again!
