I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar II and am currently taking quetiapine 150mg and Citalopram 40mg. However, since my new diagnoses I am having the quert upped to 300mgs and the Citalopram discontinued over 6 weeks lowering the dose. My psychiatrist said my ECG was borderline at 446 and the cut off point is 470. They have reassured me that it's nothing to worry about but I'm terrified I'm going to have lasting heart damage or drop dead with heart failure. Does the heart right itself after discontinuing or is this permanent ? I smoke also which doesn't help but have cut down by half and plan to stop when I've recovered from this episode. Could anybody give me any information on the ECG side of things. I'm getting palpitations worrying about it. Thanks in advance
