Inderal to replace Norvasc
I've been on Norvasc for about 4 months plus Karvea for about 2 years. BP is well controlled with these. I have suffered from chronic headaches for several years which have increased in intensity and frequency lately.  My GP wants me to go off Norvasc and replace it with Inderal because a common side effect of Norvasc is headaches and Inderal is useful for treating headaches/migraines.  This all sounds fine, however, my resting heart rate is usually in mid to high 50's. I understand neither Karvea nor Norvasc work on reducing the heart rate but Inderal will reduce it because it is a beta blocker.  My concern is that my already reduced heart rate will be further reduced by the Inderal to too low a level. I should add I'm not a fit person so don't confuse me with elite athletes who can have quite low heart rates.  Interested to hear from anyone with an opinion on this, particularly if you've been using Inderal for a while and what your resting heart rate is. Many thanks.
