Heart rate & meds

Former Member

I'm on some new meds which elevate my heart rate; on my walk just now I was solidly in Zone 3 (140-150bpm) where without the meds I would have been in mid zone 2 (133-140).

Does this have any impact on the calories I burn for the same exercise? Or does it improve the fitness impact of the exercise in any way? Or are the extra beats per minute just wasted?
