Tiredness, depression, low BP. Taking medication for atrial flutter, tachycardia. Heart ablations done. Related symptoms?

Hi, Today at the dentist they checked my blood pressure and it was 106 over 40. That appears quite low. I have had 2 heart ablations in the past and am 52 years old. I still take medication for atrial flutter and tachycardia. I have been feeling quite tired and depressed today. Could that be related to my blood pressure? Should I be concerned? Thanks!

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The systolic pressure is still in lower ranges of normal.
The diastolic is low.
This could be from your medications.

Tiredness also is possible from the drugs –
Have your electrolytes (especially potassium) checked.

Have your pressure checked a few more times...
If it is still low, and you are tired – you should see your doctor for favour of further assessment and assistance. You may need more investigations

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
