Hi Estoy,
Thanks for writing in to Heathcare Magic!
Your doctor must be having some reason to continue the four drugs...may be you have picked the lowest values of the month and your doctor is having the average of all.
If you are really having a BP in that range then get three consecutive 3 readings. If all give low BP, you can safely come down on antihypertensive doses. Remove the most costlier drug first.
Do all the changes in supervision of your local physician.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
