In brief: Pulse Rate

Blood pressure and heart rate or pulse are not necessarily directly related.
There is one class of blood pressure medications called beta blockers that do work on BP and also reduce pulse. Ideally for an adult pulse should average 60-100 beats per minute resting rate. Many factors can increase pulse rate. Talk with your medical professional about your concern.
