SVT controlled by SSRI antidepressants?

In high school I had 5-10 epsidoes of supraventricular tachycardia (for which I was never treated), as well as daily palpitations. I became very phobic about my heart, and was put on a low dose of Celexa (an SSRI antidepressant) to control that. For the five years that I was on Celexa, I had ZERO episodes of SVT and very few palpitations. Six months ago, I decided to quit the Celexa because I felt fine, anxiety-wise. My anxiety and panic level has been absolutely normal since quitting the drug, but the palpitations and SVT have crept back.

I had my worst episode of SVT two days ago and was given Adenosine (holy crap!) and beta blockers. I plan to begin Celexa again tomorrow.

Does anyone have any similar experience with antidepressants? Is it really possible that the Celexa controlled my SVT and palpitations?
