The reviews of sertraline seem to be so positive. Has anyone experienced any irregular heart beats? It feels like it's skipping a beat. I didn't take my sertraline yesterday and my heart was normal. I took it again today and the skips have come back again?
Heart irregularities - sertraline?

Thanks wildcat, I've actually been on it for a year and the heart things started around 6 months ago, but not bad, now I seem to feel a funny rush/skip every night when I'm relaxed like over and over.
Yes, palpitations and sometimes a fast heart rate are common side effects that affect about 1-10% of users when first starting an antidepressant like sertraline. They generally subside over a few days to a week or so.
I wouldn't be too concerned but it's always a good idea to let your doctor know.
