Has anyone experienced palpitations from taking Prednisone? I have had aFib in the past but since I start taking Prednisone, now I get palpitations daily. My cardiologist told me not to worry about it but the orthopedic doctor who prescribed the Prednisone told me I could stop taking them immediately since I was near the end of the dose.

What did you decide. Did you stop? I looked several places, although I did not see any direct link in the few places I looked, I did see that potassium levels can be affected, causing reduced levels. Many organge juice brands list potassium, potatoes, bananas, all decent sources of dietary potassium. Ask your pharmacist as well about the palpitations and prednisone, he or she may be able to help.
