I was taking klonopin for over 14yrs, in 2008 I started having heart palpatations went to the dr. found out heart trouble was benign I weened off of the benzos not knowing it was a problem went on prozac, and also found out I had sleep apnea, I thought that was the answer to the heart palpatations because I had them no more. I recently moved, my panic attacks came back, I went to the Dr. he put me back on a small amount of klonopin before bed time the heart palpatations came back they only lasted throughout the day though. I went back to the Dr. he changed my script to Temazepam, well the heart palpatations came back the very next day. Has anyone heard of anything like this? What can I take now???
Hello zanetrusty. Years ago I was taking Diazepam and had blood pressure issues. The dose was adjusted and I had no more problems. I realize that you are not experiencing the same side effect. I would suggest Paxil/Paroxatine. I use it. Its not close to performing as that a benzodiazepine will, but out of preference, although I have the option to having benzodiazepines perscribed, choose not to. Regards pledge

Is it normal to still have heart arrhythmia while taking metoprolol? My dr. says not to worry it is?
