Need more info: First, what do you mean by pulse too high? Normal pulse is 60-100. What is your pulse you are concerned about? Second, congrats on feeling better after having suffered broken heart syndrome. Please consult your physician regarding your beta blocker and the need to continue since your pulse "may" be high. Third, we need to determine "why" your pulse may be high. Best wishes.
