palpitations and flexeril?

has anyone ever had pvcs/pacs while on the muscle relaxant flexeril? for the last couple of months my constant pvcs have been actually somewhat manageable, or at least tolerable. then i was involved in a car accident and was prescribed flexeril 7 days ago. the palps started 30 mins after the first pill. i just thought it was stress from the accident and "oh great, the skips are back"...until they became debilitating, and my bp dropped to 90/50, where as it is usually 115/75.i went to the dr. AGAIN and he said to go see a cardioloist AGAIN. then i thought "well the only thing ive done different this week is take that flexeril" so i stopped taking it 48 hours ago. this morning i woke up and havent had one palp all day.my bp is normal too. i went from at least 40,000 a day all week to NONE!
im not complaining, for sure, but just wonder if this ever happened to anyone else?or am i imagining it?

I can't comment on flexeril, but it sounds like you are on to something.

Whatever you get from you post, please let us know how you are doing in another day or two.

I assume/hope your muscles that "needed" the relaxant are doing well too.

nothing to report...no palpitations still, but without the relaxant my back is in bad shape.id still rather deal with muscle spasms than palpitations though so im not complaining.

I can't take flexeril because of that.  Wasn't convinced that was what was causing my palps the first time so tried it again and the same thing happened.
