Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • BP ranges 125-130 over 75-87 when getting up prior to meds to 90-50 sometimes in the evening. I am a little stressed and so diphenhydramine helps me sleep along with melatonin. THese are OTC


  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Initially was given Metoprolol 25-50mg/day for high blood pressure 180/115. Was good and relaxed for about a week, then severe palpitations started to occur. Was taken off Metoprolol and put on Losartan 25-50mg/day and palpitations continued to be severe and frequent 2-5/day lasting a few minutes to an hour or two. Recovery was longer. Shortness of breath was accompanied. Was at cardiologist's office when a severe palpalitory event was occuring. He said I was having PAC's. I've been told PVC's as well in past visits to the doctors office. I stopped taking Losartan a week and a half ago. I've had several good days without palpitations occuring with a few days with severe palpitations occuring. I'm not sure if palpitations will cease, but I wasn't having palpitations or arrythmias prior to taking any of these medications. Again, I am seeing a marked improvement overall after ceasing these medications. I've lost 20 lbs or 10% of my body weight over the past 2-3 months and feel much better, but the severe palpitations do occur still without much warning. Last night I had an episode that lasted close to an hour and a half. After the palpitations reside and normal heart function returns, stomach sour sets in and I end up urinating frequently and also evacuating my bowells which help with recovery. My cardiologist says that the stomach sour is a result of the palpitations and not the other way around. My stomach isn't causing my palpitations. I will never take another med again in my life. It's poison to my system. How other's can tolerate this stuff is beyond me. I eat right and exercise everyday.


    hrb on Aug, 11, 2014:

    I came down w typeII diabetes, got put on VicToza and metformin,after a year told to increase victoza, and couple months later SEVERE heart palpitations, kicks, flopping after eating with the simplest exertion, very alarming, was sure I would be riding in ambulance or hurst within the week, that bad. I new if I called my cardiologist he would just tell me to take atenolol, mask and cover it up, it got so bad something told me to cut the victoza (and had to severly cut carbs to do that) and IMMEDIATELY the serverest heart kicks subsided, told Dr I wanted on regular insulin right away wasn't taking any more Victoza. I still have the palpitations, sometimes scarier than others but nothing like when I was on Victoza. Dr's want to do an ablation, they say it is "mild afib" but I do definately notice now when I eat carbs AND when I shoot up w insulin those things most often trigger it. Been going more low/no carb and it has greatly lessened the number of incidence, the Dr's act like they have never heard of that, it can't be possible. I don't really want to have an ablation but I know I can't go on with these kinds of palpitations/multiple beat feelings.
