The relation of low pulse rate to high bp.

Q: I am a 61 year old man in excellent condition but I have been on blood pressure meds since I was 30. I have always had a very low resting heart rate of between 36 and 42. Could my high blood pressure be related to my low pulse rate?

A: Certain drugs used to treat high blood pressure cause a low pulse rate. Good physical conditioning is associated with a lower resting heart rate. It is likely that both your medicine and your physical conditioning account for your low pulse.
