  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I noticed my heart rate getting lower and lower, now at about 43. I'm wondering if it could be the combination of Klor Con (potassium) and Quinapril (ACE Inhibitor) causing this. I also have heart palpitations and can feel my pulse throughout my body. It is uncomfortable to lay on my back.
