Stimulants, Heart Palpitations and Calcium Channel Blockers

I've had palpitations (PVCs and PACs) for a few years now and stimulants seem to make them worse. A few days ago a doctor suggested that I take calcium channel blockers to counteract the side effects that I get on stimulants (palpitations and rapid heartbeat).

Has anyone tried taking calcium channel blockers with stimulants? Did it help your palpitations, rapid heartbeat or other heart related symptoms? Did it make stimulants more tolerable?
