Dizzy?: My first question is this: are you symptomatic when the blood pressure is low. By this I mean are you dizzy, light headed, short of breath or weak? If yes see someone immediately. If not you should probably see your clinician soon and have an EKG done to be sure there are no signs of a heart block or other problem. And lastly, is this regimen controlling your blood pressure adequately?
