How are premature ventricular contractions treated?

ANSWER

You probably don't need medical treatment for PVCs if they don't happen often and you don't have other health conditions. But some lifestyle changes may help you control them: Limit caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol, and manage your stress and anxiety.

If your doctor finds that your PVCs are caused by heart disease or a problem with the structure of your heart, they should go away if those conditions are treated.
