Hi Linda. Prednisone often causes increased heart rate for me when ive had to take it & my Dr assured me it was a side effect that some ppl experience. If this is the 1st time you've taken this med & your heart is still racing then I think to be safe you need to contact your Dr & tell him what's going on just as a precaution. Take care

try not eating high carb or sugar food while on prednisone. it can cause high blood sugar and that can make heart beat fast.
