Thank you for your question.

Heart pounding is something that must be evaluated ASAP to rule out a problem with the heart rhythm or ischemic heart disease.

Have you been seen for this or ECG done recently?

Please let me know.

To answer your question:

This IS a reported side effect with this drug.

The frequency is uncertain, so they don't know how often this happens.

I suggest that if you go to urgent care now, or the ER, for an EKG.
