Our expert says:
Yes the rhythm problem you describe sounds like "VPB's", which stands for "ventricular premature beats".
But from what you are telling me it seems that your reaction to the VPB's is a bigger problem than the VPB's themselves.
Three cardiologists have all found your heart to be healthy. VPB's can occur in perfectly normal healthy hearts and in that context are not a sign of underlying heart disease and do not mean you are going to develop nasty arrhythmias. You have had them for 5 years and they have done you no harm - except to aggravate your anxiety. The best thing to do about them is ignore them.
I doubt they are related to Cipralex but you could always try an alternative drug.
It is not appropriate to focus attention on your heart when your main problem seems to be anxiety. Your heart is simply an innocent bystander! My advice would be to get help for the anxiety problem.
I hope that is of some help
