Let’s talk blood pressure

I’m on medicine for my heart and it lowers blood pressure in order to take stress off the heart. I’ve never had high blood pressure in my life but holy moly do I have low blood pressure now. Just measured it and I’m sitting at 89/57 with a pulse of 74 (I just finished walking around cleaning the kitchen). It’s very normal for me to be anywhere from 90ish/60ish to 110ish/75ish since starting this medicine two years ago. Every once in a while I’ll get light headed and will have to eat some chips or something salty in order to raise it a bit but 99% of the time I’m fine with it.

It kinda freaks me out to be that low sometimes though. Anyone else have blood pressure this low? Does is affect you?

You should probably ask a doctor.

I’ve talked to my doctor about it and he’s not concerned. Just asking here to see what others with similar readings experience with it.

Well there was an entire thread on imported peptides to get your dick hard. So there has been plenty of medical discussions on old age issues.

You definitely came to the right place for sound medical advice.

You could have your own board for the number of threads you start

I get those kinds of measurements also. I had one not long ago at 61/46 with a pulse of 48. I've noticed that most of the time this happens shortly after eating. Doctor wasn't concerned.

Talk to your doctor, if your pressure gets low enough for you to get lightheaded he may be interested in trying something less effective. 110s is fine, 90s is pushing it.

I told my doctor my 5mg of lisinopril was making my hair thin and we went over different options

What medicine and dose, out of curiosity? Therapeutic goals are not typically in that range, and I would certainly stress to your doctor that it is not just a situation of you having a low BP, but being symptomatic, especially if the light-headedness is contemporaneous with the low BP readings. This is not something to blow off.

I’m not on any such medication, but do walk 10-12 miles a day, and my resting pressure has been 90/60 on more than one occasion. Resting pulse sometimes in the 50’s. I’ve never asked my doctor about it, but felt fine when the pressure was low.

While doing the inpatient chemo stuff my BP stays pretty much in the 115/75 range and my resting bpm hovers in the mid 80s, they measure it every 4 hours. I heard over the weekend in the Daytona 500 that some drivers exercise to keep their bpm's low, and their resting bpm is in the low 50s. Blew my mind.

I assume he’s on a beta blocker and ace/arb/arni for congestive heart failure

Needs to tell doctor about symptoms

Good heavens, how do you even maintain an erection

I am not a doctor, so

quote:

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is generally defined for patients as blood pressure over 140/90 mm Hg (millimeters of mercury), with either number being too high. The first number is systolic pressure (pressure when the heart is beating) and the second number is diastolic pressure (when the heart is at rest). Ideal blood pressure readings are less than 120/80 mm Hg. You should consult your physician if your blood pressure exceeds 140 mm Hg systolic and/or 90 mm Hg diastolic on more than one occasion or if it is significantly elevated on any one occasion.
