heart fluttering with Advair?

I've been taking Advair 100/50 for about 2 years and with good results. The only problem I've noticed is my heart fluttering all the time, and caffeine makes it worse. It gets pretty uncomfortable at times. I have an appt with a cardiologist next month just to make sure it's nothing more serious. Does anyone else have this problem since taking Advair?

One of the posters on here said he/she started taking Berotec because it reduces the heart fluttering. Is this a maintenance drug like Advair or is it a rescue drug? I may ask my doctor about it.

Thanks.

I also got heart palpitations with the Advair. It went away with time, though. My mom was even considering taking me to a cardiologist until it went away.

Advair is an excellent medication for most people. My recommendation would be to keep the appointment with the cardiologist and to continue the Advair.
