Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
the heart palpitations start within a few minutes after taking a 400mg. dose of liquid amoxicillan. Dosage prescribed is 400mg/1tsp 3 times daily. Heart palpitations continue throughout day although are less severe than right after taking a dose of the amoxicillan.
From this study (7 months ago):
for more than 2 years I have struggled with different side effects, one by one I eliminated vitamins or medications until recently all side effects are back to back. If I have a headache and back ache in the morning by the evening there are other side effects, they alternate on the daily. At this point I have consulted 2 Doctors, Urgent Care and ER, no one Doctor will remove this Implanon. I've been told the Doctor who put it in must take it out and I was insulting the Doctor by asking another one to remove it. My heart thumps out of my chest and I fear i have little time and I've gone so far as to trying to cut it out myself. I want this foreign device out of my system before it's too late!!!

I can not believe what I have just read. You were describing me down to a tee. I have been having chronic headaches for 6 months with no let up. I have had scans and tried so many different medications that made me so ill. The final straw were the painful ulcers on my legs which caused me so much pain it was difficult to walk. I asked for my inplant to be removed I was refused saying that wasn't the cause. I have since Bern back and I am having it removed next week. I really hope it is the answer
