On medication for blood pressure. Took garlic and lemon juice. Now pressure is low. Related?

I take 16 mg of Atacand for blood pressure and have been on this dosage now for about 6 months. I recently did a course of taking a shot glass of pure garlic and lemon juice for 3 weeks and then an 8 day break. I noticed my blood pressure had dropped to about 120 over 75 which I thought was a good thing but the last few days my blood pressure is significanly low when I measure it on my home monitor. Today it has varied beteen 97 over 58 and 95 over 60. Is this too low and I have not taken my blood pressure tab today because i don t want it to go any lower. I feel slightly dizzy when I rise from chair, more so than usual. Do you think the garlic and lemon concoction has caused this drop in blood pressure?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The role of non-pharmacological approach in the management of blood pressure is very much limited.
Large fall to levels below normal is unlikely.
You should see your doctor and exclude other causes of fall - like a heart attack.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
