Does lisinopril slow down heart rate?

Does lisinopril slow down heart rate?

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. Other BP meds that lower heart rate more include beta-blockers, clonidine, and sometimes Diltiazem verapamil. Rates of 60 and above usually are ok, .

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

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.

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?

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.

Cant find blood preesure meds to agree took toprol (metoprolol) xl, cardizem, lisinpril getting frustrated taking 5mg Norvasc but it cause heart rate to raise, ?

Cant find blood preesure meds to agree took toprol (metoprolol) xl, cardizem, lisinpril getting frustrated taking 5mg Norvasc but it cause heart rate to raise, ?

Agree with what?: Are you having drug interactions? What other side effects? Many people who can find no class of medication to treat their problem, often are not experiencing side effects of the medication, but anticipation of trouble as result of anxiety. Ace inhibitors (lisinopril) are very well tolerated, but if side effect, arb is good option. Norvasc (amlodipine) (dhp-ccb) is also well tolerated, with few side effects.

How old is your baby: A heart rate of 160 can be perfectly normal in a newborn baby and with activity or fever in babies up to several months of age, so it all depends on how old your baby is and whether there have been changes in the baby's appetite or degree of alertness. Consult your pediatrician if your baby is otherwise happy playful and eating well or have him checked asap in an er if he is not stable.

Can clonazepam help decrease heart rate and reduce palpitations?

Klonipin and Heart: Yes, but this is not a good drug to use on a regular basis for these heart issues. I have never met a cardiologist who would use this as a regular treatment for this heart condition. There are more effective medications with less side effects.

What is the treatment of rapid heart rate in infants? Please help.

What is the treatment of rapid heart rate in infants? Please help.

Depends on situation: First you must define rapid, as an infant may normally run rates of 90-180/min in various states of activity. If the rate is high for the activity, you identify the reason for a rapid rate and fix it. For dehydration you give fluids, for fever you reduce the fever. For infection you treat the infection. For a heart related issue, you must identify the problem to treat it.
