I take Toprol LX 50mgs for 12 years., Heart rate and BP. BP is low during the day. Once, 87/59. Talked to doctor, more water needed. Ways to raise it?

In brief: Why do you want to?

Low blood pressure (BP) is good for the heart- it's less pressure for the heart to beat against, which makes it easier. Only be concerned about a low BP if you're having symptoms affecting other organs.
(Most sensitive of those is the brain - fainting / passing out). Low BP & HR probably due to Toprol. If you're not having symptoms, no need to worry. Discuss your history on HealthTap Prime or TTYD
