My husband started taking berberine. He has diabetes, high cholesterol.

My husband started taking berberine. He has diabetes, high cholesterol. He takes insulin, oral diab med, losartan and crestor. He is having low BP, 80-low 100 systolic, and bradycardia: 40-52. Could this be due to drug interaction with the berberine? He is seeing a cardiologist and will be getting an echo and halter monitor next week.
