You don’t mention your age, or what tablets your doctor gave you.
The first step would be to try and identify the nature of the “heart flutters”. If they are happening every day, then the easiest way to do this is to wear a heart monitor for 24 or 48 hours. This will show you exactly what your heart is doing when you experience the “flutters”. If your heart is definitely irregular when you have the flutters, at least you then know that the symptoms are heart related. However they may still be completely harmless.
My advice would be to see your doctor again, arrange 24 or 48 hours of heart rhythm monitoring, and then if appropriate get him/her to refer you to a physician or cardiologist. As a general rule I would take treatment only if you actually know for sure what you are treating. And if in doubt, I agree - a second opinion is often worthwhile.
Best wishes, JT.
