Severe heart palpitations. Heart rate steady at 80 to 100. BP increases 200/115 at times, goes down with clonidine and other bp meds. I have noticed this started since I left hosp. in July of 2013. Given while in hosp, never notice or used pulmicort prior to this time. Have asthma and copd w/exacerbations at times and treated at hosp and home as needed w.nebulizer. Also, while in hosp.BP became a problem and Dr put me on pro-cardia which seemed to work for a while. Could it be either/or both? Seeing Dr. Next week should I be concerned in the mean time. Thank You and I appreciate your time.
Cardiovascular side effects of oral budesonide (the active ingredient contained in Pulmicort Turbuhaler) have included chest pain, palpitations, tachycardia, dependent edema, face edema, hypertension, flushing, and increased C-reactive protein.
I suggest you contact your Dr. asap.-
