Mange Your Heart Rate

The scan requires that your heart rate be
in the 40-60 BMP range.

Your heart rate may already pretty low, on its own—it may not. Either way, a prescription has been sent to your pharmacy for Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg.

Please take these as recommended by us in a private email to you with your appointment details.

Please bring the remaining pills to your appointment, and if your heart rate is still too elevated, please take an additional 25mg pill. You will be fine to drive on this medication, you will most likely just feel relaxed and calm.
