First, before requesting a specific treatment from a doctor, I'd give the doctor a history of your condition (when started, current medications, health, etc). Regardless of your treatment program, he'll likely recommend you cut out all caffeine, which is stimulant. Doesn't matter when you have it (morning/afternoon), it can have an impact later on in the day/night. Medications after cutting out caffeine might include: beta blockers, sedatives and anxiety-source medications.

I m 19years old, proportional in weight, recently my heart has been beating in a funny rhythm and feels like its beating in my throat, my medical history is fine, my brother however has a congenital heart defect which and had a fontants procedure at the age of 4 to correct, this was 20 years ago. My heart beats like this at random times of the day and lasts or different periods of time. Sometimes it happens when I am just sat down relaxing and under no stress etc. Just wondering if this needs to be checked out atall, regards.

I have had heart palpitations for years. No apparent cause and no triggers just a daily thing. I am a 36 yo female . No medical problems. Heart is healthy, blood pressure normal..... I have a strong family history of heart disease , epilepsy, and strokes at early age (30 s) My cardiologist put me on low dose prevastatin as well as low dose asprin as a precaution for stoke prevention. Since I have been taking the meds I have noticed a great reduction in the palps. If I forget to take it for a couple of days they return with a vengeance . Considering neither drug is an anti arrhythmic why/ how does this occur?
