When is bradycardia too slow?

When is bradycardia too slow?

I have Tachycardia / bradycardia and a minor blockage of left coronary artery. I also have severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea and use a
CPAP nightly. Recently my BP has been fluctuating at home, but it is never low when i get to my doctor's office. When I first get up in the morning my pulse can be as low as 42. Atenolol is the only med that keeps my tachycardia under control and that has been reduced to 25 MG every night.I also take Ranexa 500 mg twice a day and Isosorbide Mono 30 mg… read more

Mike has to low blood presure until they put him on midodrine 5mg three times a day. He is doing better now. This pill really helps.

Hello Donald unfortunately you and I have some commonalities for sure. Yes, typically when we sleep the BP is lowest point normally, 42 is getting low for sure. I have the Tachy/brady too I m going down to 48 at night. I also OSA and restless leg. Sometimes if they have to keep the heart under control they have to install a pacemaker to keep us from going to low. No pacer for me yet but I may be looking at heart cyrobaltion for my Afib. Its not ideal situation to have to treat that way. Did they put a heart monitor on you for like 7 days to look at your trends? Is your o2 droop at night too? Stay in touch and be well.
