Slow Heart Rate

I'm 64 years old, with high blood pressure. Mitral valve prolapse. Taking Caduet 5/10 x1, Benicar HTC 40/12.5 x1, Labetalol 200 x1 per day. Recently my heart rate went down to the 40's. Please need some advices. Thanks

Labetalol may lower your heart rate as it has beta-blocking activity.  You should talk with your doctor and potentially have a 24 hour Holter monitor.
