BP might be low: Is your father having symptoms with the low BP? What time was the BP taken in relation to the Losartan medication? How many recordings do you have for the BP? If he is ok with no symptoms I would suggest to get few readings of BP, typically twice daily at the same time of the day for about 5-7 days and then send it to the treating doctor for modification of the BP medication as needed.

Not safe: he might faint and fall. He needs less
