Can caffeine cause heart palpitations?

Definitely. Caffeine is a relatively potent stimulant, and as true with all stimulants, it can cause palpitations and a rise in one's heart rate. Should one experience multiple palpitations and/or an elevated heart rate for a prolonged period of time, be sure to see your physician. Read more...

I started experiencing heart palpitations after switching from Atacand (candesartan) to Lisinopril. Does Lisinopril 20mg cause heart palpitations?

Usually not. Heart palpitations are not one of the "common" adverse reactions caused by Lisinopril, but that does not mean Lisinopril never causes this reaction. Different people can react to medications in different ways. I recommend you letting your doctor know about your side effect and switch you to another medication. Read more...

What causes heart palpitations and what do you do about it? I have had a problem for many years with heart palpitations. I know that caffeine is a real culprit and I try to stay away from it as much as I can. What else can I do?

A . A variety of abnormal heart rhythms, or arrhythmias, can cause palpitations. Most causes are not dangerous, and the most common are premature atrial or ventricular contractions (pacs and pvcs). This is when there is an extra beat from the upper or lower chamber of the heart, which can be sensed as an extra beat or a skipped beat. But often times people cannot feel them at all. There are a whole variety of other arrhythmias though, and many require specific treatment by a cardiologist. If you have had palpitations for years, they are most likely not serious but you should be evaluated if you have not already done so. It would be important for your doctor to exclude potentially dangerous things. If you know caffeine is a trigger for your palpitations, then avoiding it is the right thing to do. Other common triggers are alcohol, dehydration, and fatigue. If your palpitations are frequent and bothersome, your doctor may be able to prescribe a medication to help minimize them. Of course, this requires an accurate diagnosis first. Read more...
Lots of Things. If it's just a single out of place beat here or there, it's just an irritable extra beat from either the top or bottom chambers. If it's a sustained thing with a fast run, it's usu one of 3 different rhythms we collectively call svts. If it's all the time, it could be inappropriate sinus tach, atrial flutter or atrial fib. A cardiac electrophysiologist can help you get to the bottom of this. Read more...
