Brief Answer: See your doctor / Get an ECG Detailed Answer: Dear friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic See your Internist / get yourself examined / at times, basic investigation – like ECG, Blood Count & Thyroid - may be necessary... Amlodipine – by itself – can raise the heart rate! Beta-blockers – like metoprolol in small doses – are better suited here / they control the rate and pressure and help in anxiety too. Your care provider can give appropriate prescription… Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
