hello .... N Welcome ....
Treatment of Rheumatic heart disease is nicely done by ur physician.
Regarding heart rate, between 60 to 100 is totally normal.
Some time we can use beta blocker in place Of Channel Sr 120. With beta blockers some time we can control heart rate in a better way.
U should check for regular Inr Test.
So, good luck, dont worry n continue with medication

hi deepak
welcome to health care magic
100/min is not dangerous bt if it go above 100 than it can term as tachycardia and below 60/min it is term as bradycardia.
60 to 100/min is normal range so need not worry.
