Should I be concerned about a couple days of dizziness upon standing, followed by low blood pressure and pulsatile tinnitus that is still happening?

Yes: Is the dizziness vertigo (spinning) or is it light-headedness? The latter is probably related to low blood pressure. Pulsatile tinnitus is usually the result of awareness of the carotid artery beating next to the cochlea (inner ear). Rarely pulsatile tinnitus may be related to more serious intracranial problems. See your pmd, ENT or neurologist.

What can be used for low blood pressure?

Cause?: Depends on the cause of your low bp. Dehydration? Blood loss? Diabetes? Medications? Check with your doctor, but if you are symptomatic and all major problems are ruled out, then increasing salt intake or taking a steroid that increases salt and water retention, like fludricortisone (florinef) can help, just don't stop taking it abruptly! And take it under doctor supervision w/ a prescription!
