Zyrtec heart palpitations

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec heart palpitations

zyrtec

I have been on claritin, clarinex, zyrtec and xyzal. I am continuing with zyrtec now becaue of the cost of xyzal ($200/3mo) due to my healthcare selectively removing antihistamines from the formulary. Xyzal was definitely better for me than any of the others, and I have something more than the standard statement to go with that. Last week I had an allergy test done. RAST/Interdermal type.
I am glad all the cardiac test turned out fine but sometimes medicines can give people palpitations, even those with no cardiac problems. I have a friend who takes Zyrtec and it makes her heart race and she has a normal healthy heart. Be well.
Hi, I am also experiencing some palpitations and pounding of my heart. I notice that it is greatly related to stressors as already mentioned by many above. My concern is this; my mother died suddenly a month ago of a massive heart attach, she was only 46 and it was not expected. This had mad these heart problem so much more appearent and worriesome. My mother had extremely high blood pressure and a very unlucky family history, both parents had quadruple by pass surgeries ....
I researched fluticasone and found that it can also increase heart pounding or palpitations in some people. So I'm not sure what to do at this point. Have you experienced any more heartbeat issues since being on the fluticasone for awhile? I have mild mitral valve problems, but I think that usually causes an arrhythmia, not just heart pounding all the time.
I have really bad allergies/sinus, and tried allergies meds, and have done some research. Pseudoephedrine gives me bad heart palpitations and extreme anxiety, leads to chest pains. I've tried taking Zyrtec, with Psuedo and the side effects made me feel so bad, I stopped taking the med.
it also feels like when my heart pauses for 1-2 second and resumes normal beating,all these palpitations and skipped heart beat symptoms happen to me about 5,6 times a day...i cant explain it properly...
Palpitations can refer to a fast heart rate, an irregular heart rate, skipped beats or extra beats. Zyrtec is not known to cause palpitations. Sudafed, however, can definitely cause palpitations. I would suggest stopping this medication. In addition, stress can contribute to palpitations, so relaxation methods may be useful. Other possible causes include caffeine, alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs.
I would make sure, though, that your hypothyreosis is well controlled and not over-treated as high thyroxine levels may cause the symptoms you describe. Zyrtec may cause palpitations and dizziness, when I'm allergic I use Aerius instead of Zyrtec. Anyway, ask your doctor this question. And do NOT follow advice about medications you get on forums (this is very important).
Although my face didnt seem itchy, the welts on my torso were. What could this condition be. I'm now 45. I have heart palpitations and my mormal bllod pressure is 97/65. Please help.
Medrol dose pack, Z-pack, Benadryl, Robitussin, Zyrtec, etc. I am off of everything for the past 48 hours but still have the rapid heart rate so it can't be the medicine. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks for your help.
Virtually any of them can elevate your heart rate. SEcond, any kind of infection can sometimes elevate the heart rate and/or increase palpitations. Third, if you have had a fever and/or taken cold remedies, you might be a little dehydrated , which can increase your heart rate. Also -- you may think you don't have allergies, but if you have had a stuffy nose for months, you might want to rethink that. Did your stuffy nose start when you turned the heat on by any chance?
Hi, I'm a 23 year old male and very worried. Over the past month, I have been experiencing what I think are heart palpitations, but I don't know. Sometimes after I eat a lot and especially when I'm first lying down for bed it happens. It kind of feels like my heart is dropping inside amidst the beats. Like the feeling you get in the car when you come over the top of a high hill. This causes a great deal of anxiety for me and probably makes it worse.
NO history of heart disease except for occasional hypertension. this never happened to her. Here are my questions. 1. Could that episode of SVT have actually been a very rapid SINUS tachycardia? 2. Since the “episode” came on during an very heavy and extremely stressful argument does it mean that it was just a response to the stress or is it an “electrical malfunction” in her heart? 3. Are Svt’s dangerous? Can they turn into V-tach or v-fib 4.
I looked the active ingredient up and found out that one of the side effects is heart palpitations/PVC's I started taking the medicine on 3/15/11 I got my first set of PVC's on the afternoon of 4/1/11 I have never had a recognizable PVC before in my life. They were happening to me very very frequently, like at least 4 or 5 a minute. That night my mother and I went to the emergency room. I was taken in and immediately hooked up to a monitor and had an EKG.
some of these symptoms. Ditto for palpitations and racing heart (I have a minor murmur and take Zebeta for it) I don't think I am crazy or imagining the extreme discomfort in my throat/chest. It's making me excessively anxious and it is quite painful at times. I'm starting to feel at the end of my rope about this and I can't seem to get any help from my doctor. Am I crazy or is this a possible side effect? Please help me if you can.
The ENT wanted to put me on an allergy shot, but I take 25 mg of atenolol per day for heart palpitations. I am going to call my pcp tomorrow to see if he can see me this week, as I also think I have some TMD or TMJ. Thank you again for the help. I appreciate it!!!
Four months ago, I had 2 syncopal episodes, and started having dizziness, HA, crazy flushing constantly, heart palpatations with minimal exertion, shortness of breath, weakness, shaky, slight chest pain on occasion, mind foggy & changes in bowel habits, After several doctors and test and no diagnosis I started researching and it sounded like I may have had vegus nerve damage from thyroid surgery. I got a referral to Vanderbuilt Neurology because they have an autonomic center.
it is believed that some of these meds--Prilosec, Atrovent, Serevent, Biaxin, Qvar, Zyrtec, Flonase--may be contributing to the fast heart rate). I have never smoked, no alcohol, no caffeine. If my heart rate remains just as high off the meds as it was on the meds, it will support the tentative diagnoses. My cardiologist is inclined to just do periodic echocardiograms to be sure I don't develop cardiomyopathy (heart damage) due to my chronic high heart rate.
I've always had to take 1/4 dosing on cold meds bcz of that side effect even before the thyroid issues and could never take anthistamines as my heart would have palpitations .. so even when I was in pre-term labor they decided not to use the anthistamine with the risk vs. benefit thing and how far along I was in the pregnancy, etc. Now to ::::: vent :::::: along with your post ...
I continued the Venlafaxine for another two days, but my brain felt very odd and I felt nauseous so I stopped taking it on a Tuesday, just to see if the Venlafaxine was the culprit. Wednesday night, I started to lose my vision in and out, sweating, heart palpitations, brain zaps, and the worst hot flashes I've ever felt. I also had an extreme sense of doom and need to escape. I went to the ER, who told me I was having adverse effects from my Venlafaxine.
Shortly after starting 50 mcg of Levoxyl I was having heart palpitations, nervousness, sweating, insomnia. TSH was .87. Doctor had me reduce levoxyl to 6 days per week. I didn't have the heart palps anymore but I still had the nervousness in my chest etc. She said the TSH was fine so it wasn't from the thyroid. This continues for the next year and my insomnia gets worse, I have terrible overheating at night etc. My TSH was anywhere from .78 to 2.8.
I have pretty annoying allergies on a regular basis, but I've seen people with worse, so I try not to complain. Zyrtec seems to keep the worst of it away most of the time. I really allow life to get me stressed out, and can't seem to go with the flow of things so I'm wondering if it's really a stress related thing or an allergy related thing or should I be a little bit worried that there may be something else going on?
The Nodal ablation just stops the talk between the top and bottom of the heart to prevent the heart from racing. If you were completelty atrial fibrillation free for an extended period I would consider changing you to aspirin. This could be checked on the pacemaker interrogations. If you continued to have episodes though, I would probably keep you on coumadin, especially with your history of hypertension. The coughing will have no effects on the leads.
If you are experiencing 2 or 3 of the following symptoms, you probably are one of them.
I started the antibiotic but had a bad reaction to it (fever, chills, heart palpitations, etc.). Went back to the doctor the next day who took me off the antibiotic and told me just to proceed with the two inhalers. I did this for about two weeks with no results whatsoever. On the advice of a friend, I tried another antihistamine (generic Zyrtec). It's been about 5 days and no results.
This condition of course, is more serious and my heart goes out to folks with it. At the moment, I do not suffer from loss of sensation or shooting pains that some complain of, although when the pins and needles are especially intense, it is bordering on being painful - certainly very uncomfortable. There is just one niggling suspicion in my mind about why the pins and needles may have started...
If you can purchase Xopenex brand (levabuterol) that does not cause as much shakiness or heart palpitations if you got those as well. If the allergy treatment doesn't take care of all the problems, you may want to see if the side effects deminish after a few timed doses of the albuterol. I think you have generic albuterol available. In the US we have switched to Hfa propellant instead of the CFC one and consequently lost the generic versions.
) I occasionally still get heart palpitations.. or monitor my heart rate etc. but I have realized that it really is me again trying to control something; people w/anxiety seem (in my case anyway) to always want to keep things ok, and right, (I was brought up in a very, very harsh and constricting environment /constant berating, so I found out later on this is why I always wanted to please people..to be ok and so they would like me somehow..i did not realize it went to everything in my life...
I was told it could take 6 months for the heart to heal. I would get little runs of svt also and my ep told me its the heart trying to go the old path but it can't so it goes to the new path. I had them the worst the first 3 months. Then they subsided. I was advised if they last a few seconds not to get myself crazy over it. It sounds like your having the same thing a few beats and then it finds the new path. It should improve as your heart heals.
I can't help but notice since I joined this community some months ago, people with skipped beats or palpitations tend to ask questions about PVCs. Like all flips in the chest are PVCs. The upper chambers in the heart are more "irritable" than the main chambers. In other words, they are more likely to produce premature beats (PACs). A few examples: Which is more common - A-fib (atrial) or V-fib (ventricular)? Which is more common - SVT (atrial) or VT (V-tach) (ventricular)?
