Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Tropol is Metoprolol - it can reduce the pressure; as a matter f fact it is one of the common drugs used to treat blood pressure... But you have not said what is your pressure? Did you measure it? - or simply attributing your symptoms to low pressure? Measure it - you can even have ambulatory monitoring to measure all through the day....
Other drugs used - ativan - can also lower the pressure!
Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
