Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

Hi All,

Sometimes SWIM suffers from a really rapid heart beat after taking more Ritalin than she should.

Do you have any tips how to slow down the heart rate?
Any over the counter meds or food / drink, whatever?

Please do share!
Thanks

Re: Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

Swim is not aware of any OTC meds that will slow your heart rate really.

Swim finds that sipping water and eating a slice of bread or 2 and sitting or lying down with some relaxing music will drop his heart rate and related anxiety greatly. Also take slow deep breaths in and out 6 or 7 times.

Take care.

Re: Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

SWIY should talk to SWIY's doctor if it's being taken as prescribed and explain the situation. Typically a benzodiazapine would be prescribed, most likely clonazepam for that.

However, if SWIY is not taking them as directed, then well, not so sure the doctor would want to hear that.

If that's the case, not much to do than what's already been posted, sitting down, laying down, slow breathing, calming oneself. Not much else, really, that's healthy.

Be well...

Re: Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

A benzo would help with any anxiety, but it will not reduce heart rate caused by the ritalin, unless anxiety is the major factor in the ops post.

A benzo will not block the effects of the increase in adrenaline that the ritalin has caused. But may help to keep swiy calm untill the ritalin wears off and heart rate slowly decreases.

Agreed, but easing the anxiety, which probably only gets worse when concerned with a fast heartbeat, along with the calming effects of the benzo might help.

Be well...

Re: Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

Beta blockers (eg propranolol) are used by some to counteract the increase in heart rate and blood pressure associated with stimulant use. However, they are prescription meds and SWIM would not suggest using them unless advised by a medical professional. Beta Blockers block only the beta adrenergic receptors leaving the alpha receptors available, which could possibly lead to severe negative consequences. Although the mechanism and potential effects aren't widely agreed, theres enough evidence to rule this out without professional advice. Theres an article on Erowid about it called "Interactions between Beta-Blockers and Ephedrine or Amphetamines" which includes the somewhat contradictory quote below:

"... especially in patients without a history of hypertension. Vasodilators, such as phentolamine, nitroprusside, hydralazine and nifedipine, are the preferred agents for treating ephedra-associated hypertension.(2,5) B-blockers should not be used alone to treat hypertension because a hypertensive crisis may result from the unopposed effects of the a1-receptors on the vasculature. Tachyarrhythmias are usually responsive to treatment with lidocaine, low-dose propranolol or esmolol.(2,5,14)"

Swim agrees with other responses that your doctor would be best to help you with this.

Take care and good luck.

Re: Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

Colonidine, (cattapress) will help too. Best thing is don't get so amped up and blow a gasket.

Post Quality Evaluations:
Good advice. Direct and to the point.

Re: Tips - how to slow down rapid heart rate?

you could augment drug like clonidine with your ritalin it will slow down the heart. Try taking 1000mg magnesium a day and 3-4 grams of fish oil they help as much or more than meds and actually strengthen the heart and slow down the heart and stop palpatations.
