I took only 100mg of Rhodiola Rosea the other night, and now my heart won't stop beating rapidly! Was hoping the rhodiola would help with sleep, but in fact did the opposite!

Taking stuff to sleep like Olanzapine, 5-HTP, only makes things worse!

Did I mess up my adrenal glands or HPA axis? I think they were already messed up due to Lyme Disease, high mercury, high copper, previous high stress, etc.

Please help!

How are you doing, did your heart rate return to normal? Have you had this problem before? How fast is rapidly?

No my heart rate problem is still here. My boyfriend gave me alcohol tonight, it has decreased my heart rate a bit but I worried when I wake up the same thing will happen again.

My heart is just beating faster than normal. At first I would call it a quivering heart beat ... but then my boyfriend thinks it's just beating faster than normal. I am so worried. It has been 3 days now. I am worried the Olanzapine and 5-HTP made things worse. Now I am getting agitation on top of the rapid heart beat. It has helped with anxiety and fatigue but definitely not worth it with this heart problem.

Have you called your doctor or visited the Emergency Room? I'm not a doctor, nor have I played one on TV ;-) but if you're concerned and you feel something is not quite right, it's better that a doctor makes sure everything is OK, such as by an EKG.

If it feels normal when you wake up, still consider seeing a doctor, but if it doesn't feel right, still feels like a "quivering heart beat", you probably should be seen at a hospital emergency room.

If you are seen, by doctor or ER, be sure to tell them everything and anything that you use, medication, energy drink, supplements such as you mentioned, alcohol, caffeine, (and not suggesting that you do, but for anyone else reading, even illicit or non-prescribed drugs).

There are some arrhythmias that involve the top of the heart, the atrium, that would require taking anti-coagulating medications at the very least, and it's important that a doctor rules out this type of arrhythmia or if found provides the necessary medication.

Please keep the forum updated on your progress. Wish you well.
