Suggest treatment for low blood pressure

]I've been getting low blood pressure for the past 2 and a half months... it gets as low as 85/45 at night and a heart rate of 46. I've increased my salt, and added more caffiene this only helps for a very short time, an hour tops.. what can I do-now- to raise it?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
First please undergo complete lab test as

HB, TLC, ESR, BLOOD UREA, SERUM CREATININE, SUGAR LEVEL, URINE test, most importantly thyroid test, serum sodium, serum potassium, and lastly abdominal ultrasound

You will get clue in these tests

If everything comes out normal then you have to take tab Fludrocortosone
till lab tests and ultrasound please take well nourished diet and any multivitamin antioxidant combination but take Fludrocortosone as the last resort.

With Regards,
Dr. Varinder Joshi
