Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JustAnswer.
Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 19 days ago.

I understand your concern.

If you're feeling okay and don't have symptoms like dizziness or severe fatigue then a heart rate of 53 is not anything to be worried about and you may continue taking the medication.

You may take it on alternate days as well but if you feel fine on current dose then daily dosing is fine too.

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 19 days ago.

Tapeing is not needed at such a low dose.

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 19 days ago.

I haven't accepted the call offer. You won't be charged.
