I take atenolol 12.5mg. Heart rate 75-82 when I combine same dose with I fish oil capsule heart rate 62-74. Why is this?

Not likely related: Fish oil shouldn't affect your heart rate but regardless, as long as you don't have dizziness, faint, headache, or nausea, that heart rate is normal. Also sometimes the act of digestion will cause a noticeable heart rate decrease - which is what is supposed to happen. The fish oil tablets may be doing this. ...Read more

Confirmation bias: There is no mechanism for this. Most likely you are experiencing a deceptive phenomenon called confirmation bias, where a believed notion is confirmed as true since it is consciously monitored. When it does not hold true, the negative correlation is considered an anomaly and exception from the usual pre-conceived notion.
Alternatively, taking the fish oil calms the HR by trusting its benefits. ...Read more
