Heart problems after smoking marijuana while on Doxycycline Hyclate. Increased heart rate. Tests all normal. Effect on heart or any other problem?

Last year I smoked marijuana while on Doxycycline Hyclate which caused a troubling effect on my heart, it quickly increased by heart rate and stayed like that for an hour. I feel it did damage to my heart as Ive had cardiac issues, but all my tests have came back normal, and my cardiologist has told me it isn t anything serious. Do you think it could be something else?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Dear patient,

There is no evidence to suggest that such combination for a short period of time could cause cardiovascular permanent damage, so probably an alternative explanation should be sought if you continue to have palpitations. If you have not had any symptoms, and you have been reassured by a cardiologist, then things are probably fine.

Truly yours,
