In brief: 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.
