Could my medication increase my heart rate?

Could my tablets be causing me to have a fast heart rate which in turn makes me breathless? I’m on losartan amolidipine a statin and uniphyllin and also the new three in one inhaler – Trelegy. I don’t have mucus and don’t have a cough. Just really bad breathlessness.

    Hi margaretsaxon and thanks for your inquiry. A side effect of many of the commonly used medications for COPD can have an affect on the heart. If you’re finding this to be the case for you, you probably should discuss it with your physician. Please check back and let us know how you’re doing. All the best, Leon (site moderator)
