In brief: Medicine/pacemaker

Your doctor will determine if any medications are causing bradycardia and remove them. If symptoms persist, and medications are not to blame, sometimes a pacemaker is required.

In brief: Are they symptomatic

If not do nothing.
..Otherwise, search for reversible causes. Pacemaker is last resort.

Probably 90% of the bradycardia I treat is due to different medications; looking at the medication list is the first order of business.
