I provided an answer in your original post, but I will copy it here.

I asked about the evaluation because it is important to be certain that there is no problem outside the heart that is causing the slow heart rate. Thyroid disease is a common problem that may be the underlying cause, and it sounds like you have hypothyroidism and are on thyroxine replacement. It will typically take 4-6 weeks for the thyroid levels to stabilize on replacement, but it also may need further adjustment of the dose. The blood tests are typically checked again after 6 weeks, and the dose adjusted as appropriate.

It is also common for a slow heart rate to be due to certain medicines, which is why I asked the question, but none of these medicines will cause a slow heart rate.

If the thyroid replacement is not sufficient to improve the situation, and no other underlying cause was found, then the usual next step for treatment of a slow heart rate is placement of a pacemaker. This would be more important if the blood pressure also drops significantly when the heart rate is slow, which is why I asked that above. A pacemaker would be inserted by a Cardiologist, so seeing a Cardiologist would be the next step.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.
