My symptoms seemed to begin when i began taking setraline/zoloft. Fast pulse, fast fluttery pulse, slow weak pulse and slow irregular pulse with fast beats in between.
Irregular pulse was noted in the side effect list.
I have since been put on prozac, which i have been on for a few months before without this problem. I have been on it a few weeks now and am still experiencing the pulse issues.
I have had a 24 hr heart monitor but was okay that day typically, i have made a doc app for thurday as this is almost constant, distressing and is limiting my activities as i am constantly tired, breathless and at times feel like I'm running a marathon, although the bisoprolol is helping a good bit.
I had lone atrial fibrillation for decades and would experience incidents requiring emergency room care roughly every three months. For the past 10 years I have been taking Lexapro (now 10mg) and Bupropion 150MG sr x 2. 2-3 years ago, I stopped the significant doses of Verapamil I was taking.
I have been symptom free for about 10 years, the entire time I have been taking antidepressants. I have caffeinated drinks, have endured stressful situations and drink a glass or two of wine a day.
Neither of the two electrophysiologists I have seen in that time have seen a similar case but both acknowledge the connection.
I no longer see an electrophysiologist despite having seen electrophysiologists for years.
