    can mepron cause heart palpatations?

    I have been taking mepron for about 3 weeks now. Doctor just added in clairithromycin. After taking the clarithromycin for 2 days, I started getting terrible palpitations. So, i quit taking that and am only on the mepron. Still getting the palpatations, but not nearly as bad. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience!

    i have had similar experiences while on antibiotics. not sure what causes it but my original llmd did tell me it had something to do with lyme and the heart being infected from lyme. i have also had periods of palputations that did go away after being on antibiotics for a week or so.

    Re: can mepron cause heart palpatations?

    I'm wondering if you had that symptom prior to treatment? I had some fluttering when the meds "kicked" in but not consistantly. Babesia does cause heart skips, with lyme in there it makes a horrible situation. I had terrible heart issues, weak heart, slow beat at night and then racing in the morning. Some strains may be resistant to Mepron, try malarone if mepron doesn't improve in 2-3 months. Super artemisinin by allergy research was very helpful. Helped take away my babe anxiety. Oh, and try to take some antibiotice iwht mepron, maybe try zithro, suppose to "play" better with mepron.
