I am taking stamlo Beta tablet for my blood pressure. These days I am getting terrible head aches and when I checked my BP, I found it is high but not very high, but my pulse is around 56 per minute. Does the low pulse rate has anything to do with my head ache? Does the intake of Stamlo Beta has anything to do with the low pulse rate ?

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for using XXXXXXX

You are having High blood pressure and taking Stamlo beta and your blood pressure is reasonably controlled. Headache can be due to uncontrolled blood pressure or it may be due to other cause like migraine, too much stress.

Monitor blood pressure and if necessary increase the dose of medicine or another agent may be added. If problem of headache persist than a CT scan of head would help us to exclude any cause from inside head, if headache persists then a visit to Neurologist is warranted.

This drug contains two drugs namely Amlodipine and Atenolol which is Beta blocker and causes slow pulse rate. Your pulse is 56/min which is acceptable with this drug.

Hope this helps, if you have any further query please feel free to ask, I will be happy to help.
