  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I was originally prescribed Tenormin for hypertension in the early 90s; however, one of the side effects was a reduction in the number of instances when my heart rate would increase to annoying levels (150 BPM or greater lasting as long as 6 hours). I continue to take it for this reason only. I still get occasional episodes of racing heart rates but far less frequently and usually after strenuous exercise.
