Anybody else’s heart rate go up really quickly when doing light exercise? Mine goes up a lot quicker than it did before I started Saxenda. Prior to use it’d take me approx 5 mins on the elliptical to get to a target HR of 153 bpm and that’s me going at 70 rpm. Now I hit target HR at 2-3 mins at a much lighter pace (50 rpm) and I couldn’t speed up otherwise it’d climb to 160+ bpm and the machine will then tell me to slow down.
I had to switch to the treadmill which I never liked because I could never get to my target HR, but today I was able to get it up to 140-150 at a moderate pace and hit 170 bpm again when I did some light jogging.
I’m wondering if this is a common side effect.
