palpitations
I had been taking protonix 40mg twice a day for GERD prior to having my gallbladder removed last Monday. Starting yesterday and today I have been having frequent heart palpitations. I just completed a z-pack for strep throat that developed after the surgery last week but did as directed and took the protonix one or more hours before I took the antibiotic. Could stopping the protonix after taking it for a month be the cause of the palpitations or something else?

Hi, there are no known interactions between z-pack and protonix, so your palpitations may not be related to the medications.The throat infection and the surgery can cause an increased heart rate and consequent palpitations. So, wait for the infection and inflammation to subside, if it still persists then consult your doctor to rule out other causes for palpitations like arrhythmias and hyperthyroidism. Regards.
