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

In brief: 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.

In brief: Yes

Heart palpitations are ususally due to abnromal heart rhythm. These can be many different arrhythmias.
We usually try to decrease them with beta-blockers such as atenolol. Zocor is a cholesterol medication that lowers bad cholesterol. Premarin (conjugated estrogens) is estrogen for post menopausal replacement.
