Thank you for your question.

Can you please enumerate your blood pressure medications?

It may actually be one of your blood pressure medications that is the cause of your low heart rate.

I am Doctor Thomas, a double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine, with advanced training in several other fields. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.

A heart rate of 50 or higher is not a concern in most people.

However, you need an EKG right now, medications or not.

It should not be this low all the time and a block [there are various types of blocks on EKG] needs to be ruled out.

Beta blockers and calcium channel blockers can aggravate such blocks.

I am a double board certified US doctor.
