In brief: Depends
There are many types of arrhythmias that can give palpitations.
On the same token palpitations can be caused by fear, caffeine, stress, drugs, medicines, diet pills, etc. Best approach is to document heart rate and rhythm of the heart while it is occurring. A dr. May order a holter monitor to see what happens in one typical day in the heart. Seldom needed:lab test to check cathecolamines.

In brief: See your Dr. first
There a many different drugs used to treat arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms) but you need to know which rhythm is occurring in order to choose a medication.
See your doctor to find out what the arrhythmia is, them he/she can prescribe you medication.

In brief: Diagnosis
It is critical to know what the specific heart rhythm problem is in order to treat it well.
Different dysrhythmias are treated in different ways - some with meds and some with procedures. Some abnormal rhythms are caused by other meds, or chemical imbalances so these should be checked as well. Many medications can affect heart rate and rhythm. Common ones:beta- and calcium channel blockers.
