Does Lisinopril Lower Heart Rate
Can lisinopril have the benefit of lowering a heart rate even though it may not be as effective as a beta blocker?

Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
Just minimally: Lisinopril and related drugs (ace/arbs) minimally lower heart rate (just 2-3 points on average), more only if the potassium goes up excessively.

I have recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure and just woke with a heart rate of 120 should I be concerned? I have been taking lisinopril for 3 days
No.: A heart rate of 120 is not unusual or worrisome per se. It can be a normal response to various things, such as exercise, pain, fever or anxiety. If it resolves on its own, within a few minutes then you need not worry about it. However, if it persists for hours or if you are having symptoms such as trouble breathing or chest pain etc., then it should be evaluated. ...Read more
I am on a low dose of lisinopril and my heart rate gets down to 34bmp. I wear a fitbit to monitor and I have bradycardia. Is this safe for me to take?
Odd issue: I can't see that the Lisinopril would effect your heart rate at all. Regardless, either your fitbit is not picking up an accurate heart rate or you have a real problem. Call your doc now & discuss the situation. ...Read more

Water will, too: If fast heart rate is due to dehydration, rehydration in any form will lower it. Water is the best choice, unless very strenuous, prolonged exercise, then sports drinks may have some slight advantage. Never count caffeinated or alcoholic beverages as rehydration, they actually work as diuretics and make the problem worse. ...Read more

Can clonidine lower heart rate? Having POTS, my HR is usually 115 on a good day. The past 2 weeks it's been as low as 40 bpm.
Yes: Loweing heart rate is a side-effect of this centrally acting anti-hypertensive. For a paitent with POTS, I donot believe Clonidine is the best drug for treatment of hypertension becuase of its effect on the autonomic system. See a cardiologist or electrophysiologist, and get another antijypertensive. Note, when weaning off clonidine, you can also get a rebound hypertension. So you need to follow. ...Read more

Obtain a list of all side effects from a pharmacist and consult/follow-up your physician about taking this medication. ...Read more
