Stephanie,

You are already on very low dose. So taking it on alternate days would not increase the heart rate.

You may still monitor your pulse / heart rate and confirm it.

Chance of heart rate rising is quite unlikely.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
