what's the normal heart rate?
1)What's the normal heart rate during normal activities?
2)What's the normal rate while on toprol for a high rate?
3)Is it normal to have periods in the 130's to 235's while doing normal activities without meds?
4)Is it normal to be on toprol and doing normal activities and still have periods of high rate of 130's to 209?

Define "normal activities." Reading the paper, pulling weeds in the yard, walking through the store? My guess is anything over 200 is not normal. 130 can be fine if you're hauling groceries up the stairs. I was at the gym walking on the treadmill. My HR was holding between 126 - 134. That's fine. Then it popped up to 191. I didn't consider that normal. You must be in touch with a doctor if you take toprol so I'd talk it over with him or her.

130 being active is normal.  Over 200 is probably a little high, but it depends on what you're doing.  As long as your heart is a normal rate at rest and responds appropriately to exercise and your cardiologist doesn't see an issue with your rates...I wouldn't stress overly much.  Of course avoid stimulants.

Normal is different for different people.  If people exercise a lot and every day their heart rate is usually on the low side.  Mine is between 48-54 for decades on or off meds.  For other people a heart rate like mine makes them tired with no energy.  

Some people have normal heart rates around 100 and they are healthy.  Your heart rate also changes after a heavy meal, during exercise, anxiety, anger, stress, a fever, consuming large amounts of alocohol and the list goes on.

I don't know about heart rates up or around 200 without running a marathon I'd talk to my doctor about that.

I have been wondering this specific question, as well.  It seems the Toprol slows down my heart rate significantly. Worried it would be too slow. Can it be too slow? If so, what would happen?
