Metoprolol And Hart Rate
Not likely: If accupril (quinapril) (or any ACE inh) is given for blood pressure, the heart rate will not change. Only beta blockers and some calcium channel blockers will do that. However: if accupril (quinapril) is given for heart failure, it is possible that when CHF is better compensated, the heart rate will be lower due to the better compensated CHF and not by direct effect of the medication. ...Read more
Not exactly: Your heart rate tends to fall lower, than resting, when you are sleeping. You may also be prone to faster heart rates, during different stages of sleep or dreaming. It's not unusual for someones, otherwise healthy, heart to go slower when you are asleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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, . ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart rate: The normal range of resting heart rate is considered 60-100, but many people have lower heart rates than that and are in good health. Physical fitness like running, cycling, swimming often leads to lower hr and some people are normal even in the 40's range. If you have high bp, some meds lower the hr, such as beta blockers. ...Read more
Can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) cause pulse rate 65-54 when resting? Starting dose of 12.5 mg. Normal pulse rate 77-69 resting.
Will taking adderrall 30 mg and verapamil 120 mg a day increase my resting heart rate and give me irregular heart beats?
Irregular heart beat: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant that's used for ADHD - so just like caffeine and other stimulants it can lead to irregular beats -- especially if the dose is too high for you. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is actually an amphetamine or 'speed' so you can understand why it might have that effect. Verapamil on the other hand is a calcium channel blocker and serves to ssslllooowww things down, so that should in some ways help ...Read more

Clonidine 0.1 mg or propranolol 10mg to help resting heart rate come down? My heart rate is usually 105-120 and blood pressure normal to slightly low.
Beta blockers better: It sounds as if you may have a condition called inappropriate sinus tachycardia. This may be confirmed by your physician. It is best treated with beta blockers or calcium channel blockers. Ablation may also be an option. I would avoid Clonidine due to side effects. ...Read more

Bp 114/86 pulse 64 Taking Atenolol 50mg/day. Dr lowered Atenolol to 25mg/day and added Norvasc (amlodipine) 5mg to increase pulse rate. How do these two melds work?
As follows: Atenolol is a Beta-blocker- it works by lowering the blood pressure through multiple mechanisms, some involving the brain's output of adrenaline. It will slow one's heart rate and can cause some depression. Norvasc (amlodipine) is a calcium channel blocker that dilates the arteries to lower the blood pressure. It can raise the heart rate very slightly and cause some leg swelling. They can be used together. ...Read more
I think so: I think ur asking if a heart rate of 81 when you are not resting (so perhaps after you exercise?) is a safe rate; if that's correct then yes 81 is probably fine. A "normal" heart rate varies depending on lots of things (age, activity, emotions, meds, hydration status, more). In general the better shape you're in, the lower your rate goes. And with vigorous exercise it can go up much higher than 81. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Coronary artery calcification...I take adalat (nifedipine) blood pressure ok but heart rate high 110 at rest ..feel heaveness on chest and shortness of breath.help?
Need examination: That is an abnormal resting heart rate and for someone your age & history of coronary artery calcification as you state- if this is entirely new for you in terms of symptoms then, your next move should be an ER facility. You are welcome to write to me with other questions if you'd like at: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi but I don't think that should delay getting seen now. ...Read more
