I take BP meds. Valsartin and coreg. I am 78

I take BP meds. Valsartin and coreg. I am 78 years old and have had two open heart surgeries-2009 and 2015- both aorta valve replacements. Now having low BP and very tired and very sore joints. Just lowered Valsartin from 160 to 80 on Friday. This started May 9 after playing softball. Same thing Thursday and Friday after softball. BP still low this morning 108/58. Last week it was down to 88/46 and that is when they reduced the Valsartin. Guess that's it Thanks Patrick ( Pat ) Henretty

Would Coreg be a safe med to take for a person who has a 60 HR and low BP but trying to reduce the pressure of idiopathic hypertensive portal vein? This patient suffers from CLL, thyroid, gout and varices due to the portal vein. This patient has no history of high BP.
