Watch BP: It can cause a drop in your blood pressure. You should monitor your blood pressure closely for the next several hours to make sure it doesn't drop too much. Also if you start feeling lightheaded, dizzy or like you maybe feeling faint call your doctor. You should probably have someone with you to help if you have any of the symptoms described so you don't fall and hurt yourself.
