    Is heart rate of 120 bpm normal?

default
Posted on Mon, 3 Jul 2017 in Mental Health
Question: Hello, I take 10 mg of abilify and 1 mg of klonopin twice a day and Centrum vitamins. Today my heart rate has been 120 - 146 for the past five hours. I still have one more klonopin to take but I'm afraid it will increase my heart rate more if I take it and will cause withdrawal effects if I don't. What do you think I should do?

Brief Answer:
You can take the drug

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

I can understand your concern. Since your heart rate is 120 BPM and is not getting controlled and in such case you can take 0.5 to 1 mg Klonopin and this will not cause any serious issues. No need to worry this will help in calming you. This will not increase the rate further.

Thanks and Take care
