What meds are you taking? Do you have thyroiditis?
I also suffered for years from severe palpitations- my heartbeat was so strong I felt it could move my bed at night :) I never have to take my pulse the regular way - feeling and hearing the pounding is enough.
It is important for you to get checked by a doctor to make sure this is really connected to the meds and not to some underlying condition such as mitral valve prolapse or a heart rhythm disturbance. Sometimes meds simply exasperate something (not necessarily serious) that may have been overlooked.
