trazodone 100 - 150mg at bedtime (sleep aid)
Possible undiagnosed atrial fib aggravated by SNRI and SSRI dosage.
Three EKGs inside of two weeks. All normal and showing elevated heart rate. Heart rate skyrockets for no reason. Makes me feel nauseas and I sweat a lot.
Sweat so bad while I sleep I have to wear a t-shirt.
The tremors are the worst. Sometimes it is very light and controllable. Other times I am shaking so bad I could not sign my own name no matter how hard I concentrate.
Confusion and memory is bad.
Babak on May, 20, 2013:
I am interested to know more about this because I suffered a similar symptom when I came around after ECT and was given Venelafaxine.
I suffered 8 hours of palpitation and I had elevated heart beat even on the following day.
I think my aortic valve was damaged because I was dismissed very quickly from the hospital and later I found out that I had developed a heart murmur which lead to replacement of the valve after five years.
My family has no history of heart disease but when I complained they told me that it must have been genetic.
One thing I don't understand. Were you on hydrocortisone as well?
