Bp And Hr Relationship With Medicines

Recommended Posts

I have a high HR (POTS) and can get exercise induced Hypotension, just wondering does med that lowers HR or raises BP affect either or in the same direction? For example beta blockers lower HR and I've heard they lower BP. Is that always the case with every med. If a med raise BP will it automatically raise my HR?

In my case, the octreotide takes care of bp raise (and I'm sure other things that I I can't recall right now), but my hr still got up on standing (so octreotide for me doesn't raise hr but POTS does). I "fixed" that by taking an SSRI. Once I found the right dose that part of POTS was (mostly) taken care of!
