I have been having heart palpitations a lot

I have been having heart palpitations a lot here recently. I am a 23yr old female, I do not have high caffeine intakes. This seems to happen at all times of the day, about once a minute. Has any of you guys had this problem, or know someone that has ? I started taking Celexa about 3 months ago but this has been happening for the past few weeks. Celexa is for deppression, BTW.

Yes, I had this problem in the past. I saw 5 cardiologists who consulted me (including EKG) and they all told me to simply take it easy because the heart is not sick, but I worry too much and I work too hard. Anyway, you MUST see a doctor.

I have been taking 40mgs of celexa and 100mgs of Lamictal for my bipolar disorder for over 2 years. I was also born with 2 heart defects: ventricular septal defect and mitral valve prolapse. Over the last two months, I have developed an arrhythmia that occurs several times an hour. I'm waiting for the results of my echo, stress test, etc. (done yesterday). Question: What is the likelihood that I'm experiencing side effects of my medication? I've never had any other problems in the years that I've taken Celexa or Lamictal, but I want to make sure I treat this arrhythmia soon. (btw, I'm 32 yrs old) Thanks!
