Advice & Tips: My heart rate is generally far to erratic to control with this medication. It lowered my already low heart rate to bradycardia. I noticed that the drug itself may prove very useful for patients that have a touchy flight or fight response. It steadied my heart rate so I felt calm in most situations. The medicine itself became inadequate and generally not helpful, so I discontinued the use of it.
