Review: could Cortisone acetate cause Atrial fibrillation (Atrial fibrillation/flutter)?
Summary: Atrial fibrillation is found among people who take Cortisone acetate, especially for people who are male, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 6 - 12 months, also take medication Aspirin, and have Atrial fibrillation/flutter.
We study 3,299 people who have side effects while taking Cortisone acetate from FDA and social media. Among them, 28 have Atrial fibrillation. Find out below who they are, when they have Atrial fibrillation and more.

Cortisone acetate has active ingredients of cortisone acetate. It is often used in pain. (latest outcomes from 3,400 Cortisone acetate users)
Atrial fibrillation (fibrillation of the muscles of the atria of the heart) has been reported by people with high blood pressure, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple myeloma. (latest reports from 87,267 Atrial fibrillation patients)
On Feb, 27, 2015: 3,299 people reported to have side effects when taking Cortisone acetate. Among them, 29 people (0.88%) have Atrial Fibrillation.
