Question Low Blood Pressure

Can any one tell me what is considered low blood pressure. I have high blood pressure and taking medication for it. I have recently lost 81 pounds. The past couple of weeks I have felt dizzy and everything goes black for few seconds when I first stand up. I had my blood presure taken 2 times and it was 96-52 and 94-50. Is this too low or not. Thank you

Re: Low Blood Pressure

That is getting down there a bit, I'd talk to your doctor about it ASAP, the blackouts could be a worry. He might want to stop the high blood pressure tablets since you losing weight has probably done the trick to get it down. Well done on losing 80lbs
I'm working on losing some myself right now, very slow progress. Goodluck with it all.

Re: Low Blood Pressure

If you are having symptoms, then your blood pressure is too low. I'm no medical professional, but if it were me, I would slack off on any BP medications I was scheduled tonight and call the doctor's office for advice before I took any tomorrow morning. What types of meds are you taking? One has to wean off some of them. Most you are safe with cutting in half, but if you'll indicate what meds you are on, someone here can probably tell you if they are ones that a person must wean off slowly.

Congratulations on that weight loss!
