Can heart flutter be a side effect of pain medication such as morphine?

Yes, heart flutter is actually a very main side effect of pain medication. I had a root canal recently and this happened to me. It gets slower and more spaced out as the medicine wears down. You shouldn't have anything to worry about unless it is persistent when you are not on the medication or you have taken too many pills. Hope I was of some help!
