I am 35 yrs old and have just been diagnosed with Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome. I was hospitalized on 10/17/06 with a heart rate of 202 bpm. Are there any known medicines I can take upon onset of the rapid heart rate? My episodes last 2-6 hours sometimes. I am currently taking Rythimol (spelling is probably wrong), but I still have episodes of rapid heart beat. The hospital had to stop and restart my heart to get it to stop. Any other options other than surgery?

  • My husband was actually diagnosed wow when we were 19 so almost 20 years ago now, he spent a couple of weeks in the hospital and then came home for a month, after that month he went in for a catheter surgery where the heart was repaired while he was awake and could see everything on a monitor as they did the surgery. He has been fine since with no side affects.
