Can ppis cause frequent heart palpitations? On protonix 47 days, switched to nexium (esomeprazole). After 15 days the palps are out of control.

PALPITATIONS. To my knowledge all the ppi can cause tachycardia. If this is intolerably, try switching to a h2 blocker such as zantac (ranitidine) or tagamet. You might have to increase the dosage to get the same relief as a ppi.

I have been diagnosed with Dyspepsia and am on Nexium (esomeprazole). I have been experiencing heart palpitations when I lie down (day or night). Is this normal?

No. Having heart palpitations anytime is not normal. Indigestion and/or Nexium (esomeprazole) do not cause heart palpitations either. If you're having heart palpitations, you should see your doctor to be sure that they are not signs of a cardiac problem. Do not delay seeing your doctor. Good luck. Read more...
