May lower BP too muc: High amounts of Garlic plus Lemon may lower blood pressure. Since you are being treated for High blood pressure with a medication which already reduces your blood pressure, adding something else that lowers your blood pressure may cause you to faint, be dizzy or lethargic. A small amount such as once cup a day may be OK, try a small amount to see how you respond, before adding this daily.
