Varying BP: Your fall in your blood pressure and your increase of your pulse when you stand up seems to be due to some volume deficit. If you are dizzy when you stand up, i would go to the er and have your blood taken to see if you have any anemia, or any chemical evidence of dehydration. If you are not dizzy, discuss your BP meds with your physician, maybe their doses can be lowered. Good luck.
