I recently have noticed some palpitations. They arrive when my adrenalin  starts pumping or when I am nervous. I am on a medication called suboxone it is for opiate dependency. Does anyone know if meds like that can cause palpitations?

I'm not sure if it's your meds causing this,I have palps a lot. Some times I don't have to do anything and there they are. I will tell you when I get scared,nervous, or surprised My palps are strong and scary.  I would have to say it has something to do with adrenaline. I hope you find the answer your looking for.
