My husband passes out with low blood pressure. His Cardiologist says he has Hormonal Imbalance?????
His is on 3 pills a day plus vitamins. Morning - Aricept 5 Mg. (for 7 years) due to memory loss.
High Blood pressure pill at supper time. And Cholestral pill at bedtime.
Every few weeks or months he has the low blood pressure problem in the morning usually mid morning.
He eats well, sleeps well but must urinate (sometimes several times) at night. He does not drink a lot of water
Age 88 . Thanks
