No problem w those: There is no problem with B2 and B12 for the heart. They should not affect an irregular heart beat or change the function of any of the valves. Hope that helps!

Dr. Shahin Tavackoli
Cardiology 23 years experience
Yes: Palpitations can be because of cardiac arrhythmias, but we also see a lot of people who complain of palpitations and do not have any evidence of an arrhythmia or fast pulse rate while they're complaining of it. I have never heard of zocor or Premarin (conjugated estrogens) causing arrhythmias unless there are other issues (for example pulmonary embolism with premarin), atenolol is generally used to treat palpitations.
