The only way these two could be connected is by the hctz portion causing hypokalemia, which can then trigger the PVC and PAc. This can be diagnosed by a lab test, and remedied by either taking potassium supplements, or eating 1-2 bananas daily. You should ask your primary care physician to get a lab panel to make sure this is the case. Where you also having some leg crams and or weakness along with the PVCs/PACs
