Calaptin 40mg Tablet used for

I am 28 years female, suffering from psvt for the last 1.8 years. I was advised to take calaptin 40 initially thrice daily, then calaptin 120sr once daily as there were no symptoms/ episodes in 1.8 years. Now few days back I got one episode for 30 mins terminated by vasal maneuvers. A doctor suggested to take calaptin 240sr daily. Is it okay?

If you had recurrence on a dose, which you are sure was not missed then your dose can be increased if tolerated. Beyond medicines, there is option of radio frequency ablation which is an invasive procedure in case of recurrent episodes.

Get your vital parameters of the body checked from a nearby doctor and follow up with findings and I will suggest you to eat nutritious home made food with adequate fluid intake and take physical rest

Actually I am 29 years old and I am suffering from little heart ache from a very long period around 7 years. I consulted many Dr. But they are saying I don't have any problem, just a mild infection and to cure that. I am using calaptin 120 sr from a very long time. I want to know is there any side effects of consuming this medicine for a long time or life long?

There's nothing safe or unsafe as such. If you have a condition for which a particular medication is necessary and its discontinuation may cause harm, then you have to continue it. Lifelong or not depends upon your condition. However if alternative safer medication can be given for your condition then you may choose one after consulting your doctor.
