I have been having heart palpitations for the last couple months. Wasn't sure why they started. Went to the ER went to my doctor all test were normal. ER doctors thought maybe it was from untreated High blood pressure which in fact it was running high in the hospital and after release my Doctor started me on a Beta blocker 50 and HCTZ 12.5. and Magnesium 400 mg Blood pressure seems to have stabilized but I still have the palpitations. After much frustration I looked at the eye vitamins I was taking Lutein 25 mg & Zeaxanthin 5mg I read something that stated that the Lutein can cause my symptoms. I have since stopped these vitamins and will see if my palpitations stop. Has anyone else experienced this?
