Used to have strong, normal heartbeat but for the past month been weak and faint. Went on a cocaine and adderall binge together recently. EKG was fine?

Cocaine & Adderall: Glad to hear your EKG was ok but there are a lot of other things to measure and consider in terms of health and your future. You probably know that you are living dangerously. Please consider seeing a drug counselor and going to NA meetings. Please continue to see your doctor. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Did cocaine about 3 months ago while I was on a lot of adderall. Ever since then been fatigued, short of breath, and have had a faint heartbeat?

Did cocaine about 3 months ago while I was on a lot of adderall. Ever since then been fatigued, short of breath, and have had a faint heartbeat?

Not good 4 your hear: This combination isn't good for your heart. Depending on how much & how long you have been mixing these drugs, you could be developing "contraction band cardiomyopathy", a form of heart failure (heart isn't beating efficiently). I would suggest you see your doctor / cardiologist as soon as you can make an appointment. If you pass out / faint, get to an ER / hospital. Use HealthTap Prime otherwise. ...Read more

Some questions about adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)? Can I use it if prior history of abuse or heart palpitations?

Probably: I would consult with you physician and potentially a cardiologist. The cardiologist would probably do a ekg and/or echocardiogram to decide if you have any structural or heart rhythm problems. If you don't, you probably can use Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) under a doctor's guidance. But I would ask the doctor about these issues before using. ...Read more

Can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) negatively affect my heart 6 yrs after stopping? Gave me horrible palpitations when I took it but I continued to take it through college

Can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) negatively affect my heart 6 yrs after stopping? Gave me horrible palpitations when I took it but I continued to take it through college

Palpitations/adderal: It is possible that the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) exacerbated an underlying heart condition that is trying to manifest now. You should be seen by your doctor or a cardiologist to assess this. It is very unlikely to be a direct consequence of the Adderral you took 6 years ago ...Read more

Not usually: Lipitor (atorvastatin) does not commonly affect the heart rate or rhythm.

The best recommendation is to have an ekg done and perhaps wear a 24 hour cardiac (holter) monitor. That will help you and your doctor determine the cause of your rapid heart beat. ...Read more

Is there different types of testosterones that will cause a rapid heartbeat a few hours after injection more than others? How can this be prevented?

Is there different types of testosterones that will cause a rapid heartbeat a few hours after injection more than others? How can this be prevented?

Not to my understand: While people react differently to different medications, there's no way of knowing in advance which testosterone will cause what side effect. All the hormone preparations list tachycardia or fast heart rate as a side effect. There's no specific way to mitigate these side effects but generic cardiac meds can be used. Talk to your prescriber or use HealthTap Prime to discuss your individual case. ...Read more

Can smoking marijuana cause an unsafe, rapid heartbeat?

It can: I have seen many patients who get palpitations after smoking marijuana, who do not have problems after they stop. This is not common, and most smokers do not get it. I have worked up several patients with this complaint to see if they had a predisposition to things like atrial fib or flutter, or supraventricular tachycardia (svt), but did not find it. If you are having this problem, stop using it! ...Read more

Dx w/hypothyroid in nov. Took meds, caused chest pains/rapid heartbeat. Stopped taking meds. Still have episodes. Never had b4. I'm scared. 38/f/obese?

Cardiac evaluation: Too much thyroid can cause a fast heartbeat but appropriate doses should not; you might be allergic to one of the ingredients in the meds you took or might be deficient in magnesium or potassium. You might also have a heart problem that is hidden by being hypothyroid so I advise seeing a cardiologist for a cardiac evaluation. Treating your thyroid can help you lose weight. See http://abt.

Most water pills can also cause potassium levels to drop which can then cause heart rhythm disturbances. REGARDLESS, these are SERIOUS symptoms. Please seek immediate emergency medical care.
