Sometimes: A systolic of 100-110 is normal and well tolerated by many people. If you had a systolic of 150 for awhile and lowered it too quickly you may feel lightheaded until you get used to the new pressure. Often times, though, any feeling you may have could be due to your medication and not the change in BP itself. Definitely let your doctor know.
