Poss. anemia or iron: With the symptoms that you have it is highly possible that this may be all due to low blood pressure, but because it occurs after breakfast every day it may be a reaction to the gluconate. You have some other medical problems and I do not know what your hematocrit or CBC shows. You need to listen to your doctor and perhaps change your medication as well
