    Hi Debi, I am currently on estradiol pills 1 mg. I have been taking them since June of this year. I do not have the heart palpitations now. I did experience the heart fluttering when I first started taking them. It has been a month since I had them. I also take magnesium 250 mg tablets also, I found that adding magnesium to my diet helped with the heart palpatations. You should go back to your doctor and discuss it with him/her. Have your doctor test your hormones, too see what the levels are. Maybe the doctor will change the dosage, or give you something different. I know heart palpatations can be very scary, you think you are having a heart attack when you are not. I hope this information helps you. Good Luck.

    Hi Debi, I also forgot to mention that when you are having the palpatations and dizziness try to do some deep breathing it helps.
