I have been having skipped heart beats for awhile now. I can feel it in my throat and my pulse. I finally went to the doctor today, and he is ordering a holter moniter. These skipped heart beats are driving me crazy. He put me on xanax twice a day to see if it will calm me down I am having a lot of anxiety lately too. I just want these things to go away. I am getting afraid to go anywhere alone.. I used to take Celexa 40 mg. twice a day for almost 8 years. I weaned off it because I gained so much weight. I had blood work done and my potassium was low I thought the skipped heart beats were coming from the low potassium. ,.Am now taking Klor-Con for it. My last blood test had my potassium at 3.5 which is the low normal. Doc said today that it should not be making my heart beat irregular.
I have read a lot about the skipped beats, but when it is happening to you it seems like it is so much worse. Did anyone here Celexa and go off of it? I am a 65 year old female.
