Genetic variant: Some people have a genetic variant of an enzyme that metabolizes alcohol. The aldh2 gene regulates the production of the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 that transforms acetaldehyde into acetic acid. The aldh2*2 variant is common in individuals of east asian descent (45-50%), but is extremely rare in most non-asian populations. When drinking alcohol, these people flush, have tachycardia, etc, . ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can I mix claritin, (loratadine) Pepcid complete and drink alcohol? I have the Asian flush as they call it and get rapid heart beat, headache, red flush+warmth.
You can, but…: The Asian flush, as you term it , is caused by an enzyme which makes you metabolize alcohol into acetaldehyde. Since this is a genetic issue, Pepcid and Claritin (loratadine) will not help, although you can take them with alcohol in reasonable doses. Also, there is an increased risk of esophageal cancer with alcohol intake in patients with the Asian flush, so you should avoid regular drinking. Good luck. ...Read more
Is it safe to take 50 mg of metoprolol daily for my anxiety and rapid heart beat if I have a normal blood pressure?
Probably yes: That said, did you discuss the pros and cons of this medication with your doctor? If you are sexually active or if you are into sports, you may suffer decreased sexual function and decreased exercise tolerance. If you only have an anxiety disorder and aren't using illegal drugs or too much caffeine, there are other anxiolytic medications that might be more suitable for a 21 year old.

Dizziness, blured vision and rapid heart beat while exercising.. Heart beat during rest is 89-100bpm blood pressure 117/84..Is it normal?
Discuss w doc: One expects a physiologically appropriate increase in heart rate with exercise. This could be magnified if your volume state is low (intravascular dehydration) . Symptoms of dehydration coupled with the normal sympathetic stress of activity could explain this--but if you are still symptomatic after assuring adequate hydration you should see a cardiologist for monitoring/echo-stress study. ...Read more
I ve had rapid heart beat for months now, around 100 or a bit above, I am 38 and most of my blood tests were normal , any idea what may be the cause?
Most were normal?: So what tests were out of range? A high thyroid level might cause your heart rate to accelerate. Being anemic (low red blood cell count or low hematocrit) may result in an increased heart rate, as your heart beats faster to try to circulate more oxygen to your cells. Anxiety can increase your heart rate. Btw, i'm assuming that your heart is normal, but it would be reasonable to get that checked! ...Read more
