Lower heart rate?

Posted , 4 users are following.

My heart rate has been 80-90bmp for as long as I can remember. Recently it is down to 60-70bmp. When I had really bad anxiety it went all the way up to 127bmp but my norm is definitely 80-90bmp. The only change I can think of is starting my antidepressant (Prozac). Anyone experiance this?

    60-70 is a good normal heart rate smile

    As long as it's not lower then that you should be ok.

    But ask your doctor

    Very imprtant info my doc gave me was ro take ubiqinol co enyme q10. Start at the lowest dose and follow the bottle.your body makes it but anyone with any kind of dizzy or heart palp issues their cortisol is drained and it helps stabilize the nidy. Its a vitamin and so simple.

    I will definitely ask my doctor about this on my appointment next week. Especially because I am only on half the dose of Prozac he plans for me. So I am kind of worried what will happen when he asks me to increase my dosage.
