High & Low Blood Pressure board


My dad, 86, has been diagnosed with low blood pressure. He is taking amiadarone (10mg) 3x day, florinef 1x day, lipitor 1x day, pacerone 1x every other day and synthroid 1x day.
He feels dizzy when he stands up, sometimes he nearly passes out right after eating and while still sitting at the dinner table. Sometimes he can be walking for awhile and still have an episode of near fainting.
Does anyone out there have any advice for me? Would compression stockings really make a difference (neither my mom or me is able to get the compression stockings on him no matter what we do because they are so tight).
The problem has caused my dad to be afraid to do anything, and he has poor eyesight to boot (he gas glaucoma (for which he uses Lumigan eye drops) and he also has macular degeneration).
Please help as my dad is otherwise strong, has a good appetite and does not want to just give up but I'm afraid he will.
