Couldn't find what you looking for?


my heart has been skipping alot and after i belch arterwords my doc. says it is anxiety and i am on paxil what do you think.


It seems that doctors have been diagnosing too many anxieties lately. It looks as if the stress is taking over us.

Are you under a lot of stress? Do you get anxious episodes at all?
Heart skipping is a stress sign and if you had all the cardio tests that came negative, then stress and anxiety are usually suspected.

Now, different people react differently and even if you are not so anxious, the drug may help you by increasing serotonin levels in your brain, which should alleviate these feelings and so you would get less of these heart-skipping episodes.

Certain drugs may make you feel like your heart’s beating fast and even increase belching, so if you have been taking anything before paxil, make sure you report this to your doctor.
