In general, dopamine is used to temporarily increase blood pressure when it becomes too low. The pain medication Tramadol, to my understanding, lowers blood pressure (does not raise it) - that may be the cause of the low BP. I'm not sure why 3 anticoagulants are needed for Afib (usually 1 suffices). Use HealthTap Prim
