Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

I would like to tell you that if palpitations are not settling even after tropol then kindly go to the ER and get an ECG done to rule out any heart arrhythmia or abnormality.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
