Cardiology: Yes, you should see a Cardiologist, discontinue any energy drinks, decongestants, coffee, tea, Moutain Dew or other stimulants for now. That is abnormally high for a resting heart rate. A Holter monitor or event monitor might be instructive. At least see your primary care physician for an EKG and advice. If you are overweight, then start a weight loss program with a reduced calorie diet as well. ...Read more

How come a person with a low resting heart rate is healthier than a person with a higher resting heart?

How come a person with a low resting heart rate is healthier than a person with a higher resting heart?

Fitness: An individual who is in better fitness shape will need to have their heart pump less often to supply blood and oxygen to their body. So if that person does strenuous exercise there will be a greater range for the heart to increase to supply oxygen to the muscles used in exercise. Obviously there is also an efficiency training effect with exercise, but that is a brief explanation. ...Read more

My resting heart rate is 113 and standing 133 with a peak of 142. Is this healthy? I am taking Vyvanse for my ADHD. should I stop taking this?

Heart rate: That's a pretty elevated resting heart rate. Are you taking other medications or drinking caffeinated drinks? I don't recommend discontinuing a medication without discussing with your physician. You should call and get an appointment to evaluate heart rate and blood pressure (and compare to previous measurements). ...Read more
