Relax: There are things called vagal maneuvers that can very temporarily decrease filling to the heart and force of heart squeeze. They can be profound enough to cause you to pass out from low blood pressure. But i don't think that's what you're going for. In terms of non-drug interventions, relaxation is the fastest. This can be meditation or breathing exercises. ...Read more
It depends.: A blood pressure is too low if a person feels light-headed or faint. For many patients a blood pressure below 100 systolic (the upper number in the blood pressure reading) is too low.

More like HOW FAST: A more important variable to consider for your question is the speed at which pressure rises.

If someone with low blood pressure began to take pills to lower high blood pressure, what would happen to that individual?

Eat healthy food: Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance that eventually causes high BP.
