Suggest remedies for low blood pressure

I usually have high blood pressure but it is 115 over 56 and has been as low as 90 over 50. I had used some Epsom salts in a tub in the sink a couple days ago and that s when my pressure went to 90 over 50. Should I not take my blood pressure medicine tonight?

Hi welcome to HCM.
Low blood pressure has to be effectively treated.Adequate hydration with 3-4 litres of water is needed.Elevate the foot end of the bed at night.Drugs like fludrocortisone and midodrine will help to increase the blood pressure in resistant cases.Screening 2 dimensional echo can help to evaluate the heart function.Blood pressure medication needs to be stopped until the blood pressure returns to baseline.Consult your cardiologist for further query.
Thank you.
