I was taking amlodipine 5mg+metoprolol 50mg in the morning and ramipril 5mg in the evening. the heart rate dropped to 52-55/min. I have reduced metroprolol to 25mg since last 5 days. The BP is average 130/85 and heart rate is 58-62. Will it longer to stabilize and heart rate to increase further? Does the present combination of amlodipine 5mg+ metoprolol 25mg in the morning and ramipril 5mg in the evening have any serious side effects? I am 54 yrs old and hypertensive.

I take Metoprolol 50mg. plus Lisinopril 40mg, plus Hydrochlorathiazide 25mg. together in the morning. Is that safe, no interactions?

Sunil, you should consult your doctor, there is a chance that your lowered heart rate is not due to the medications, there could be something else going on.

What time of day have you been checking your heart rate? Does it go back up with activity? 62 is not considered low, it falls within the average for an adult, which is from 60 beats per minute to 80 beats per minute.

Is your medical provider aware that you have changed your dosage?

Delia, there can be some interactions, such as lowered heart rate, and lowered blood pressure, according to NIH warnings, so you should monitor your blood pressure regularly.
