Treatment depends on the cause of the palpitations. Most palpitations are harmless and often go away on their own. In these cases, no treatment is needed.
Your palpitations may be harmless but bothersome. If so, your doctor may suggest avoiding things that trigger them. Your doctor may advise you to:
Treating Medical Conditions That May Cause Palpitations
Your doctor will try to help you control medical conditions (such as an overactive thyroid) that can cause palpitations. If you're taking medicine that's causing the palpitations, your doctor will try to find a different medicine for you.
If your palpitations are the result of an arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), your doctor may choose to treat them with medicines or procedures.
