Psychiatrist 's  Response
Ibuprofen will not lower your heart rate. However, some over-the-counter cough remedies containing other substances in addition to ibuprofen might. It would be difficult to predict the response to these medications.



There are better medications and psychological techniques to reduce your heart rate.



You also need to address

1. Why your heart rate is over 100/min

2. The reason and adverse effects of your clinical obesity (BMI 35.5)

3. The reasons for donating plasma twice a week



I would suggest you seek professional psychiatric help. It would help resolve all these issues.

I am 65 yrs and want to stay fit. I m 5 8 and 180 lbs. I eat rather healthy diet and exercise regularly. I was told that my heart rate of 134 immediately after treadmill is too high. I do not feel dizzy or any chest pain. Should I slow down a bit to get the HR lower?

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?
