Does Prednisone cause an increased heart rate?

Answers

Noahsgram,
Not necessarily. Prednisone has been known to cause hypertension and tachycardia (irregular heart beats) in SOME people, but just because you use prednisone DOES NOT mean you WILL experience these; just that you might. Hope this helps.

tachycardia is not irregular heartbeats. Tachycardia is an elevated heart rate. Irregular heart beats are a different thing... from a cardiac nurse
