Have frequent nose bleeds from time to time. Am on atenolol, lisinopril and flecainide for mild arrhythmia. Are the two related?

Have frequent nose bleeds from time to time. Am on atenolol, lisinopril and flecainide for mild arrhythmia. Are the two related?

Not related: Your nose bleeds are most likely a result of nasal dryness. We do see an increase of nose bleeds in patients with high blood pressure, but your medicines should be controlling that. Keep the nose moist with saline spray and a little daily vaseline. This will likely be helpful. If persists, see an ENT to make sure no large superficial vessels that could be cauterized. ...Read more

Do you know anything about heart palpitations and the use of zocor, premarin, (conjugated estrogens) or atenolol?

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. ...Read more
