I've been on Forteo for about 6 months and the only side effects I have had is a hot flushed feeling a couple of times. I have a mild case of mitral valve prolapse and have a tendency to get heart palpitations that have lasted for weeks at a time. I've had them for years. I take Corgard but it doesn't always stop them completely. Forteo hasn't made the palpitations any worse for me. I know the side effects of Forteo are possible palpitations and dizziness. I thought that these two side effects might be caused by some people having anxiety about injecting themselves. I would ask my doctor why the Forteo might cause the palpitations and/or dizziness.
