Pulse rate with BP meds

Q: Since changing BP meds my pulse rate has been in the 80’s-100. Before it was in the 60’s -lower 70’s. If I wake up during the night it is still high. I am very concerned about the change. What do you think?

A: At rest, normal adult pulse rate ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. Your pulse is in the normal range. I suspect your previous blood pressure medication kept your heart from beating faster. For example, a slow heart rate is a side effect of beta blockers.
