xtra heart beat

I take lopresser 4 times a day 25mg... my pulse is always 63. Is this a good rate. It is for an extra heartbeat

This heartrate is fine as long as it isn't causing you to feel excessive fatigue, lightheadedness, dizziness.  4 times a day is a bit more than the typical dosing schedule for lopressor, it is usually 2 times a day.  But it is not an unreasonable dosing schedule if it works for you.  Stay in touch with your physician that prescribed it.  Best of luck to you.
