In brief: 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!
