Unfortunately there is no treatment in terms of medication that you can take for low blood pressure. There is only medication for treatment of high BP. In the short term she needs to be assessed by a Dietician to assess her diet and the improvements that can be made to it to combat the malnutrition. Malnutrition drops blood pressure. Sometimes to dangerously low levels. She should sit or stand up slowly to prevent a further sudden decrease in pressure. She also needs some support, professionally, to help her deal with her emotional issues. Other wise she will be on a Merry-Go-Round. Until her BP increases to an acceptable level be her friend and help as much as you can. If you can of course. Once her BP is stablised she needs to continue on with the Dietician until he or she is satisfied there is no more further risk to health. And continue to seek professional help until she is able to deal with her issues and life on her own.

hello doc, My mother,55 has been a hypertensive from the past 12-13 yrs.She was started on amlodipine 2.5 and she did fine for 3-4yrs when she started having acute cough.Amlodipine was changed to Nifedipine and the cough subsided.For another 3-4yrs she was doing well when her legs started becoming edematous.Nifedipine was then changed to hydrochlorthiazide and her BP has been perfect until the past 6 months when it shot to 145/90.Inspite of increasing the dose there was no difference so she was kept on telmisartan40mg+hydrochlorthiazide.Even now the BP does not seem to come down and it shows a value of around 145/90.She does not have any other complaints (except for urinary incntinence for which she has not yet started any medication),her heart and kidney profiles hav also come out clear.Can u suggest a gud combination and is the BP at an alarming level? thank you
