Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My doctor was sure that it could not be the Lisinopril, because I had been on it for over 2 years. I am absolutely sure it was causing severe heart palpitations for over 2 months. I am no longer taking the drug and I have no symptoms.
From this study (8 months ago):
I have had intermitant heart palpitations over the past 10-15 years, but they have dramatically increased in the past few months.
From this study (8 months ago):
Heart palpitations started before starting Focalin XR; They come and go all day long. Can't seem to take a deep breath.
