I have been using Lumigan for 2 years now. I experience blurry vision on waking up and my eyes are always red. However, my main concern is lately I have been having a rapid heart beat at night after I use the drops. I decided to experiment and not use the drops for a couple of nights. I had no rapid heart beat those two nights but tonight when I used the drops again I woke up because I was experiencing the rapid heart beat again. I have to wonder if this is from the Lumigan.

Default Lumigan heart problems

I have experienced the same problem with racing heart at night. When I discontinued the drops there was no more problem. Also, I experienced anxiety in the night when I used the Lumigan.

<br>I have had both racing and slow pulse rates the past few weeks I have been taking the drug along with chronic sinus irritation. I am stopping the drops for a couple of days to see if the problems ease up.

Default Racing Heartbeat with Prostaglandin Analogue Eyedrops

It is interesting that so many seem to have racing heartbeat with Lumigan or other prostaglandin analogue eyedrops (like Xalatan). Am wondering if these prostaglandin analogues might be triggering hormonal responses or imbalances that could cause rapid heartbeat?

Would be nice if the pharmaceutical companies that produce these meds would research and publish findings on such questions, but it may be up to self-help groups such as this one to do such "grassroots" research...
