I suspect the Isosorbide was responsible for the drop in the blood pressure. Was 30 mgm the starting dose? How often? What is the "very low number" for the blood pressure? I would communicate with your physician and ask for his advice. The effect of Isosorbide may also by exaggerated if you are underhydrated. Good luck.
