Is it normal to have very low blood pressure while taking meds for high blood pressure?


I take meds for high blood pressure but I started exercising, and yesterday I had mine checked and it was 97/73, I felt awful. I was just wondering if it is normal for this to happen or do I need to get off the meds.
----------

high bp----> meds-------> low bp

If you're becoming symptomatic (dizziness, shortness of breath, confusion)from the low bp the meds caused, that's not good. Meds might need to be adjusted in terms of dose or class or timing. Talk to your doctor.  (+ info)

Hi Curtis..

Please...if you have any concerns check with your doctors.

Much better to get a proper medical opinion that you ask on Yahoo Answers as the doctors has to take any medical conditions into account.

Why is my blood pressure normal when I wake up in the morning, but high at the end of the day?


I've been borderline hypertensive for some time. My doctor has put me on blood pressure medicine just recently. I bought a home blood pressure monitor, and in the morning my blood pressure is normal, but after work, at the end of the day, it is sky high?
----------

Could be different things making your blood pressure being high, eating alot of salt, stress at work, worrying, just different thing, smoking will make it high too. Your dr may need to adjust your blood pressure meds, just take your reading to him, at least 3 to 4 reading a day. Good luck and take care of that blood pressure because that could lead to serious problems down the road, heart trouble and even death.  (+ info)

See the link below. Scroll down to the chart titled: Categories for Blood Pressure Levels in Adults
It says a normal adult (age 18+) blood pressure should be less than 120/80. So that puts you in pretty good shape. Some say that if your systolic pressure drops below 90 or your diastolic pressure drops below 60 you have low blood pressure. But really, you are just fine at least for this reading.

Fluid build-up or infection in the inner ear can cause a balance problem and/or make you dizzy and nauseous  (+ info)
