High & Low Blood Pressure board


I'm a 65 year old female who has had hard-to-control high blood pressure since my late 40's. With three meds (Lisinopirl, Atenolol, and HCTZ), we were finally able to keep my bp within normal limits. I stopped worrying about it and pretty much stopped monitoring my BP myself. About 3 months ago, just for the heck of it, I took my BP and got a reading of 90/56 (crazy reading for me). However, it has been pretty much consistently low (anywhere from 90/55 to 117/70) for the last month.

Is it possible, with aging, that one's bp can drop and that I might not need to be on all the meds I'm taking. I have not yet discussed this with my doctor.

However, I've been wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar.

Thank you for any responses.
