I have been having irregular heartbeats for quite some time. I get palpitations and a feeling that my heart is missing beats. I get breathless and dizzy when this happens. Sometimes, the trigger is exercise, either walking or climbing stairs, other times it occurs when at rest. I am currently taking Aripiprazole and Citalopram. The heart problem began before I started taking these medications. I was recently given a heart monitor to record episodes. I can send you pictures of the episodes for you to read if possible. I would like some answers as my local cardiology department is taking some time.

I understand your concern and would recommend performing some tests to investigate for possible cardiac arrhythmia or other metabolic causes that may trigger this situation.
If these tests result normal, you should consider anxiety as the main cause of your complaints.
