Meds for herart rate: First of all, it depends on why your heart rate is fast. If you have atrial fibrillation for example, digoxin is good. If your heart rate is fast because of too much coffee, alcohol, otc decongestions, anemia etc then treat or stop underlying cause.

Do sports drinks lower heart rate?

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.

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.

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.

I am experiencing rapid heart rate and I was wondering if muscle relaxers, specifically Flexiril, lower heart rate?

I am experiencing rapid heart rate and I was wondering if muscle relaxers, specifically Flexiril, lower heart rate?

Caveats: Do not use Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) to lower your heart rate. In fact the opposite may occur. Do not use flexeril if you have a heart rhythm disorder, or you have recently had a heart attack; congestive heart failure; heart block; or a thyroid disorder. Obtain a list of all side effects from a pharmacist and consult/follow-up your physician about taking this medication.

BuSpar (buspirone): Can do either, but this is uncommon. (reported in less than 1% of people who take it.). There is a risk of elevated BP with concomitant use of MAO inhibitors. Do not take with grapefruit juice made from the rind. This can lead to toxic blood levels.

I tend to have a lower heart rate (around 58) because I eat low calorie, but I have anxiety. I read Ativan can lower heart rate. Is it safe to take?

Yes: Ativan has no direct effect on your heart or your heart rate. It only lowers heart rate by making you calmer. It's entirely safe to take. It's given to people during their heart attacks without adverse consequences.

Is lower heart rate, the lowest was 37bpm during sleep, (recorded on holter monitor), any danger? I am 33 male, 183cm 92kg. Have b12 defficiency, D defficiency and chronic sinusitis.

Is lower heart rate, the lowest was 37bpm during sleep, (recorded on holter monitor), any danger? I am 33 male, 183cm 92kg. Have b12 defficiency, D defficiency and chronic sinusitis.

How do you FEEL?: If you're an athlete and not having spells where you pass out, this is fine and you should be proud of it. If you have other evidence of heart pathology, it's your physician's decision whether to have you worked up for some obscure illness. If your B12 and D deficiencies are due to vegetarianism, please begin supplementing; if not, try to find the cause and supplement appropriately.
