In brief: Thallium?

You said "thallium" but perhaps you meant adenosine or lexiscan? - these two agents are used to perform a stress test in which you don't have to exercise, thus in contrast to your first one.
Both agents can cause the heart rate to drop as a side effect which has no prognostic significance.
