What medications can be used to slow a fast heart beat ?

What medications can be used to slow a fast heart beat? I have a fast heart rate. I'm only 15. I was wondering what medications can be used to slow this down? I was hoping there are other things than Beta Blockers. Because I heard that Beta Blockers can be dangerous or not helpful. I heard there have been at 800,000 deaths caused by it.

how much is your heart rate per minute? Self medication for cardiovacular disorders that too when in doubt is not recommended because any drug interfering with normal functioning of one of the most important organ of the body i.e. Heart can be dangerous.
