How are palpitations treated?

Heart palpitations often do not require any treatment, unless your palpitations are caused by a more serious heart condition. When no treatment is required, your doctor may simply recommend that you avoid the activities that cause your palpitations. In the rarer cases when palpitations are caused by a more serious condition, such as some arrhythmias, the treatment will focus on improving this condition.
