Anthony Bray MD :

Since Norvasc reduces peripheral resistence The heart rate may rise some to compensate. This is not usually a great amount. I would estimate maybe 5 to 8 points for 5mg dose and perhaps 7 to 15 points for 10mg dose.

I hope this helps. Further questions are welcome if you have others. Best Regards,
