Having on and off heart palpitations since last week. My heart races when I walk and when I wake up in the morning and when the weather is hot. Cause?

Time to see a doctor: A young woman who feels palpitations should be checked by her primary care doctor (family medicine or internal medicine, not Ob-Gyn) to make sure her body is ok from a general check-up point of view, and to listen to her heart. It could just be that she is out of shape and trying to exercise herself back into shape. But, it could also be that her heart is beating irregularly for another reason. ...Read more

Which of my meds could be giving me heart palpitations? Mostly in the morning and at night :/

Without having: Any more information, from all the drugs you are using, Isotretinoin will be one that could give you palpitations. An echocardiogram was done and possibly an ekg. If those were negative, the other possibility is anxiety attacks and then drug induced. You need talk to your primary care physician for further evaluation and decision making. ...Read more

Why do I get heart palpitations every morning after working a night shift?

Why do I get heart palpitations every morning after working a night shift?

You Must See Your Dr: Night shift workers have more palpitations and heart problems than non-shift workers. Partly this may be due to increased stress and sleep deprivation associated with night shift work. But also the night shift interferes with your bodies biological clock (circadian rhythm); which in turn is synched to daylight and darkness.

On Bupropion SR 100mg once in the morning. On day 5 now and I'm having noticeable heart palpitations. Will they go away? When? Is it causing damage?

On Bupropion SR 100mg once in the morning. On day 5 now and I'm having noticeable heart palpitations. Will they go away? When? Is it causing damage?

BIG question?: What is your caffeine intake? This side effect may occur with wellbutrin (bupropion) BUT you are much more likely to have problems with this medication if you have significant caffeine intake. I have some of my patients taper down their caffeine use before they begin wellbutrin (bupropion). Using propranolol together with fluoxetine can cause irregularities in heartbeats. Using wellbutrin (bupropion) with Propranolol can increase ...Read more

I'm weening myself off Prevacid (lansoprazole) with the help of a Betaine/Pepsin HCL pill every morning. It helps but I now have heart palpitations. Side effect?

Betaine HCL/pepsin: There are no reported cases on palpitations but theoretically the pepsin/HCL combo could have negative vagal feedback (vagus stimulation produces pepsin on our stomach). The vagus nerve via parasympathetic stmulation slows the heart and if it is inhibited there could be increase heart rate. You could try stopping the meds and seeing if palpitations stop. Check B6, folate (folic acid), B12. F/U with doc. ...Read more

Can onions cause heart palpitations?

Eating cooked onions should be fine, just like eating other cooked vegetables. Theoretically, getting hit in the heart by a big yellow onion flying at high speed can cause a problem, similar getting hit by a baseball, so don't throw onions. ...Read more
