Low Pulse Rate Side Effects
Low pulse rate. I am 37. Not in great shape. At rest it gets. Down in the low 50s bpm. Should i be concerned?
Sign of health: Actually, even though you consider yourself to be not in great shape, the slow pulse suggests you're better than you think. Heartrate is regulated by need and during rest, a slow hr is entirely normal so long as your metabolic need is normal as yours obviously is. A rapid resting rate is much more ominous. ...Read more
Various possibility: There are a number of possibilities for low heart rate, this could be due to intrinsically low heart rate as a result of being fit, from the effect of medications, from being in pain and having a vasovagal syndrome, or some cardiac reason. I cannot tell for sure, but my guess is that you are probably fit, and with some pain from the c-section, this is causing a vasovagal syndrome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Viagra (sildenafil): Viagra (sildenafil) can cause low blood pressure. That is why we don't give it with the drug family of nitroglycerine. If your blood pressure doesn't rise with sexual activity or if you just take viagra (sildenafil) and it lowers your BP while your heart is slow and it doesn't speed up, you could pass out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Beta blocker ( 5 mg bystolic) @ am causing low pulse rate low 50 day time and high 30 to low 40 while sleep.Is this ok/any risk.
I take amlodipine @pm
Talk to your Dr: I would not call your beta blocker as the problem--it is not a high dose, and should not have that pronounced of an effect through the entire day into the night. You may just have a low resting heart rate, in which case other class(-es) of meds may be better options for you. Should discuss your concerns w/your dr--otherwise will never know about this! ...Read more

What can cause dizziness and a low pulse rate (44-60 bpm). EKG, X-ray, blood work, CT scan are all normal except for low potassium.
Dizzy with low pulse: Hello JCortes, that's a really tough set of symptoms because there can be so many causes of dizziness. The first thing to come to my mind though when I hear low blood pressure though is medications, especially blood pressure medicine. If you're taking any medicine, prescribed or not prescribed, you should probably see your doctor or google them and check for common side effects. Good luck :) ...Read more
Hello I experienced minor shortness of breath and slight dizziness last night. My ECG shows sinus bradycardia at pulse rate 47. I am 22 and a smoker.
Is it normal for a cardiologist not to do anything about sinus tachycardia? My pulse is always beating 124 or more and meds give me bad side effects.
I had a 7 day monitor done. Under Pause/Block it says slowest bradycardia of 43 BPM at 4:46 a.m. during sleep. My pulse went from 73 to that. Bad?
Actually: This is perfectly normal given your gender and age ...Read more
My mom is 65 yrs. Old with familial hyperlipidemia (5'2/128 lbs).She is having bradycardia when she sleeps and eats. Her pulse is 36.What is this?
When is bradycardia considered a emergency? my pulse is 44 bpm and i feel pretty cold and dull in my head. and cold hands I have dilated cardiomyopath
Bradycardia?: I assume by "low pulse" you mean an inappropriately slow heart rate, or "bradycardia". According to the FDA (& the information inserted with the Zoloft (sertraline) package), during the trials for Zoloft (sertraline), there was no difference in heart rate or other cardiac parameters compared to placebo. HOWEVER, since it became available, cases of associated bradycardia have been reported & label was updated appropriately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
