Why does caffeine slow down my heart rate? If I drink coffee, tea or anything with caffeine my heart slows alot. What would cause this?

Atypical reaction: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, of course it speeds up the heart a little bit. If the change was under 10 beats per minute it is just coincedence.

After drinking cold beverage such as water, my heart rate immediately slows down a few beats (3-4) and beats hard then back to normal rhythm. What could this be? Its very frightening.

Cardiac awareness: Lots of factors influence the heart rate. The availability of easy to use heart monitors has enabled people to pay close attention to these normal reactions. And some people are particularly aware of internal bodily stimuli. Unless heart rate changes are associated with more worrisome symptoms (chest discomfort, shortness of breath, dizziness/fainting) they are unlikely to mean anything bad. ...Read more

Yes. From Caffeine.: These "energy drinks" actually give you NO energy but a lot of caffeine (read the label) -- often a days' worth in 1 can! Caffeine is a (mild) stImulant, but in enough quantities it can cause irregular heart beats which may be the 'prominence' you describe. You can do a simple test: cut back gradually on caffeinated drinks over 1-2 months & then see if your symptoms are better. Takes willpower, th ...Read more
