In brief: Slow heart rate

There really are no pills commonly use to treat a slow heart rate.
Unless the heart rate is less than 50, there is usually no need to treat. People who exercise regularly have slow heart rates and these are healthy. In some cases a slow heart rate is due to some medicine you are already taking and stopping it should help. For heart rates less than 50, the usual treatment is with a pacemaker.
