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.

Can anybody advice me the reason for heart palpitation, especially in the night just before going to bed or in sleep. I checked with my Dr who checked ECG Cholestrol etc and said no problem and gave some vitamin tablets, then it decreased, after one week again started. Anybody have similar experiences?

Hello, I am looking for an alternative to taking celexa, as well as a cure for the withdrawal effect of brain lag . That s what I call it when I try to get off celexa, and when I move my head I have a slight tremor or something, or I just feel my brain move separately for my head. That s my best description.

Hi. I just started taking 40mg a day of prednisone for my Crohn s. Have had Crohn s for twenty years...had 12in of small intestines removed twenty years ago. Was on prednisone before surgery for almost 3 years. Have not had any issues since surgery but was on antibiotic five weeks ago for ear infection. Started having so much nausea from antibiotic and did not go away after stopping antibiotic so family doctor said I needed to see my GI doctor. GI doctor is 95% sure that I have a little Crohn s inflammation. Doctor prescribed 40mg of prednisone for two weeks and then tapper down 10mg every two weeks for next 8 weeks. During the whole ear infection issue my anxiety flared up so family doctor put me on 20mg of Celexa, which I have been on before. Been on prednisone for five day now and have noticed little more nervousness and anxiety, particularly in morning when I wake up. Sleeping has not been good for weeks so started taking .5mg of clonazepam at bed time to help sleep. I know this is a lot of info but I guess I have a couple of questions: 1. I m assuming the nervousness is coming from prednisone, but will it decrease? 2. Is it a better time of day to be taking antibiotic and Celexa? Thanks

My daughter is 16. She has extreme headaches and anxiety. Her doctor put her on 30 mg of celexa about 3 mths ago. For the last month she has been more withdrawn, her temper is worse and gets mad a a drop of the hat. Would this be caused by Celexa or just a typical teen? She has never ever acted this way.

I recently had the left portion of my thyroid removed due to an enlarged nodule. Since the surgery (7 days ago) i have been feeling very jittery. I have been unable to sleep for the past few nights. There was no evidence of hyper or hypo thyroid prior to the surgery. I am not on any thyroid medications. I take Celexa 40 mg once/day, daily vitamin and calcium supplement. Is this normal after this type of surgery?
