Just want to clarify that the generally higher-than-other-people pulse I

resting pulse of 60, I'm usually in the 80's or 90's.

I had that too. I considered it unacceptable as a permanent situation. YMMV

OTOH, somewhere I just saw that for people with hypertension, lowering the heart rate with beta blockers ends up causing MORE cardiovascular events. (Are we having fun yet?)

What information do you have to share about why a faster heart rate is bad?

My next personal hurdle is sloNiacin. I've been delaying trying it for more
than a year. After the holidays for sure.

Instead of statins?
