Following answer to your query.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

There are a couple of measures together with medical treatment which together may help you deal with low blood pressure.

If you were my patient I would like to suggest the following measures:
- Increase salt intake by consuming more salty foods.
- Reduce alcohol intake
- Drink plenty of waters
- Avoid rapid changes of body positions (for example from laying down to standing).

If all these measures doesn't help to raise the BP than you may discuss with your doctor about adding Florinef to your therapy.

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
