Can High Blood Pressure Make You Pass Out And Faint
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

I suffer from high blood pressure (controlled with meds). During kettlebell excercises, I felt faint, suspected pressure drop? Hydrated enough&ate well
See your doc: Please do what your doc asks in terms of the meds you take but he/she may want to adjust them after you mention this. When we move from sitting/lying to standing there can be a pressure drop w/dizziness. Peace and good health.
I have high blood pressure and im on lisinopril. Laying is perfectly fine but I feel faint when sitting especially when standing, even worse in sun.?
Postural hypotension: What you are describing is a common side effect of blood pressure medications. You may need to switch meds. The first step is to make sure you are adequately hydrated. Second step is a doctor's visit as soon as possible.
85 yr, history of high blood pressure, has morning sinking spells, low BP, faints, lethargic, weak, BP goes up by noon, ran tests, nothing major?
Get a 2nd opinion: If you have a blood pressure machine at home, please check it before you get up in the morning (lying down position). Then get up slowly with blood pressure cuff on. Repeat it about 3-5 minutes after you get up. Check if you have any symptoms between lying down and getting up. Record everything and talk to physician. Medications may be the problem. Or baroreceptor reflex may be problem.See 1 more doctor answer

I have high blood pressure and on atenolol 25mg I fainted when I woke up quickly what does this mean?
I was given cardura (doxazosin) 4mg to pass a stone. I don't have high blood pressure. Is it ok to start off at the 4 mg dose or should I start with the 1 mg?
Be careful!: That dose sounds awfully high as a starting dose! You're right - we usually start with the 1mg dose and build up, because the last thing you want is to get up in the middle of the night and fall to the ground because your blood pressure has plummeted from too high of a starting dose. Ask your doctor about Flomax (tamsulosin) as an aid to passing your kidney stone. Be sure to strain your urine to get the stone!See 1 more doctor answer
My father accidently had taken300mg of seroquel (quetiapine) and100mg of tramadol. He has heart problems, tripple by pass, and high blood pressure, what should I do?
Is he awake?: Is your father awake? And what doses of these medicines has he been prescribed? These amounts could be in a normal range, although more than he's used to taking. If he's awake and feeling fine, he may have no sequelae. Please call your father's own physician and ask advice -- s/he knows your dad & how these meds typically affect him. Take him to an er if anything at all seems amiss.See 3 more doctor answers
