I am on water pill and atenolol for high blood pressure. In the mornings my blood pressure is around 85/60 with heart rate 57. Is this too low?
Yes.: That blood pressure is too low. It does not seem like you have any reason to keep the BP that low. Even if you are not experiencing any symptoms due to that low BP, it does not leave much "buffer" room. I think your medications need to be adjusted to allow for higher blood pressure. Please see your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is high blood pressure med make your blood sugar go low, i take 15gm of blood presure in the morning and little bet later my sugar is so low like 65?
Teen BP: Among adults, there are clear numerical guidelines for diagnosis, but this is not true for teenagers. This is mostly because teenagers do not have the same risks (such as a heart attack) as adults. As with adults, adolescents with BP levels greater than or equal to 120/80 mmHg should be considered prehypertensive. “Hypertension is defined as average SBP and/or DBP that is greater than or equal to the 95th percentile for sex, age, and height on three or more occasions” “Prehypertension in children is defined as average SBP or DBP levels that are greater than or equal to the 90th percentile, but less than the 95th percentile” ...Read more
