Can acetaminophen cause heart palpitations ?

a regular dose. I had palpitations for 3 solid years about 4 years ago (saw a doctor , no diagnosis of a heart disease ). I stopped taking any and all medications while pregnant and having kids, during the last 4 years. The palpitations vanished entirely during that time. I took two tylenol today, and I m having palpitations again, pretty severe case of them. There have been two other mild occurances of them recently, and I may have taken tylenol, but am not certain. The only thing I can think of that s consistent between my old lifestyle and now is that I took a regular dose of acetaminophen .

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
acetaminophen does not cause palpitations and side effect. The chances of palpitations in you could be due to anemia. The rare possibility is that acetaminophen affecting blood cells and oxygen uptake due to inborn disease namely G6PD deficiency.
I advise you to get tested for all blood abnormalities any liver disease
Hope this information is useful to you and others.
