Low blood pressure?

Anybody else develop low blood pressure after getting Lyme disease/babesiosis?

Since getting sick, my blood pressure has dropped. It's often around 90/60--(prior to sickness-- consistently around 120/70-75). I also have global cortical hypoperfusion, and it almost seems like the two things could be related.

I don't know if my low bp is from the lyme disease, or maybe the babs isn't knocked out yet (have had two courses of mepron/azithro already)

This may prohibit me from adding benicar and flagyl to my IV ceftriaxone. Well, benicar in particular.
Bill S and another person on a diff web board both have stories about how this worked for them.

Want to increase tissue penetration of the drug to maximize the effect, make sure I knock this bacteria out in the short time I'll be on it. Problem is, don't know if my doc will okay benicar since my bp may already be borderline low.

Any experience with this?

Re: Low blood pressure?

I also have low blood pressure but do not think it is related to the lyme. I am normally now 90/60. However, I am on flagyl right now. Have not had the other medicine you mentioned but seem fine on the flagly/zithro combo plus IV rocephin.

Re: Low blood pressure?

thanks, fernee.
talked to my doc, he's not concerned about it, so looks like I'll be adding in flagyl in a couple weeks and slowly adding benicar to see how I tolerate it.
