Target Heart Rate
Hi! I went in to see my Dr. on Thurs. and he thought it best that I stop taking my atenolol (25mg) because I've been running lately and he said my heart is strong now. I've been on it for about a year and a half.
So, during my appt. he asked what my heart rate is normally when I run. I never check it so I wasn't sure. I am 28, female, weigh 110 and exercise regularly. Well, I checked it that night and it was around 160. Over the weekend, however, it was 185. My blood pressure seemed normal though. I called and left a message this morning for them to call me back but I haven't heard anything yet. This just seems high to me. Does anyone know? Also, does it have a connection to me stopping my pill?
