Hello! My name is*****Welcome to JustAnswer.I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
How is the rate now?
Which medicines do you take?
Please write your pulse rate now.
Since when are you having low rate?
Thank you for all the information,I am sorry for your health condition.37 or 38 / min is quite low.This rate needs investigation.There can be a few causes.This can be due to block in the conduction system of heart.Sinus or other sites of slowing can be possible too.Often the cause is due to ischemia or low blood supply to heart.There can be myocarditis, cardiomyopathy.Hormonal disorders like low thyroid, medicinal effect, obstructive sleep apnea can be associated.I would suggest to consult cardiologist for an examination.An EKG,echo, Holter monitoring can be needed.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.Wish your good health.Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.Regards.
I am sorry.There is unfortunately no home measures to increase the rate.The cause needs to be determined & treated precisely.A monitor would be helpful to detect the exact rate & rhythm.
Did you start any new medicine recently in last week?
It is not necessary.
Please reply in chat mode.
Topiramate may not cause it.
Your medicines may not be the factor.
Your rate is already quite low.
There can be symptoms of palpitation, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain etc. from it.
It would be unsafe if it goes below 40.
However, you may not be able to count it properly.
It is continuing for a week without any symptom.
It is better to get it checked by doctor & EKG.
