Paxil (paroxetine): In few cases Paxil (paroxetine) could cause low heart beat as side effect. Metoprolol also decreases heart rate as a drug effect. Combination could cause significantly slow heart rate in your case. Because your resting heart rate with meds is 50-65. So you have to discuss with your physician.
