High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hi all. Can anyone tell me what a "normal average" female teenage bp should be. My daughter is on Florinef for low bp, yesterday at a doc appt her bp was 104/54 and the doc didnt seam concerned. To me that seams low, she is real pale and really tired again. I really dont know what to do about this anymore. Any help would be great.
Thanks
Craftylady,

I'm only 18 yrs old and was diagnosed with ortostatic hypotension. Low blood pressure is subjective (so I've seen). For me, 104/54, would be a little lower than what I'd want. I have a tendency to get really light headed and temporarily lose my vision, and I have also been known to completely pass out at times. Once I even hit my head on my wooden desk in my room, giving me a mild concussion. Anyway, I've had much lower. Unfortunately, when I'm end the doctor's office it of course raises a bit and kinda throws off the blood pressure reading. But I've also had like 90/60.

I also take florinef acetate to raise my blood pressure and it works great once I figured out the right dosage. I have to take two .1mg in the morning and two more in the evening.

As for the other medical conditions she has, I completely understand. I too have my own to deal with, and that in itself, is depressing. If she's not sleeping very well, have her take some over-the-counter sleeping pills. I know that with sleeping pills you can still feel tired in the mornings, but if it helps her get some rest and doesn't disrupt her dialy routine too much, then I think she could try that.

I wish you and your daughter the best of luck.
