How Can I Slow My Heart Rate Down By Just Meditation

My heart dr said if I went up on midodrine to 10 MG in the morning and stay on 5 mg through the day it will slow my heart rate down is that true?

Metoprolol I started yesterday. I was prescribed this med just to slow heart rate down. I started yesterday and all day I was sick to my stomach and had stomach ache all day and night even into today. I think I need to stop taking med. What do u think?
