Probably essential: hypertension and still not controlled with medication . It is desired that pulse rate up to 60 and bp medication side effect appears to be dragging the pulse rate down. Talk to her doctor may be some other kind of medications can be tried for better control and at the same time keep the pulse rate higher.
