What range is perfect pulse?


My BP has been coming down with the addition of an HCTZ. But now I noticed my pulse rate is running high. What is an ideal pulse rate? This morning, my BP was 119/78 and my puse is 124. That's just walking around the house.

Could it be the HCTZ?

60 to 100 is considered average

Often when we artifically lower BP with drugs, the heart compensates by speeding up. I think it is likely to be temporary.
I'm glad the thiazide is working.
