My resting heart rate on tegertol is 45-50 bpm and has been for at least 10 years. After 2 days without Tegreol my resting heart rate is 60-63 bpm.
You will find an accurate and comprehensive list of Tegretol side-effects here:
Cardiovascular side effects including various forms of heart block, hypotension and electrocardiographic changes have been reported."
Yes, Heart block (ie bradycardia or decreased heart rate) is a listed side effect of Tegretol. Talk to your doctor.
I have been on tegretol since my teenage years (now 54). I've noticed my low heart rate (resting 47bpm) ever since I used a wristwatch with a heart rate monitor. My doc says it is because I cycle to work often, but I am overweight and would have expected my heart rate to be closer to that of others similar to me in age and build. In the gym I have trouble getting my heart rate much beyond 100bpm. Thank you for posting your observation / question.
