its because of sideeffect of xanax you taken previously. pulse rate will slowly improve after some weeks. anyway never take such anxiety medicines, most of them can make pulse go slow. also this happens when take blood pressure pills when pressure is already normal or low.

No wasnt xanax pulse was low before that maybe the other did it tho thanks tho...Nexium protonix and zantac done it. Probly I guess ill go back and see the doc even tho he told me i had a heart blockage and didnt cardiac cath after he told me my stress test was blockage and i was clear. Hmm maybe that did it caridac cath...
