Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. The comercial products to improve health
usually contains steroids which usually show the symptoms you have mentioned. Postural
hypotension is difficult to face while moving out.
I advise you to be in touch with a doctor to look after the variations of BP. and to
have nourishing medicines.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recomendations as take more of green leafy
vegetables pulses sprouts milk egg meat fruits and juices to get all the nutrients you
have mensioned above with no side effects.
Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.

Hi Bhoward,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
You have poorly tolerated the herbal medicine and it is causing the autonomic nervous system imbalance that is the why the postural control of your BP is lost and you are showing Hypertesion when Lying and drop of BP to 99mmHg when standing.
It can cause catastrophe.
You must stop the new drug.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
