Blood pressure drops on standing because of the pooling of the venous blood in the lower limbs. athis pooling causes decrease in blood pressure. Medications, elastic stockings and other measures will help in this condition. Apart from the above measures, I would suggest getting up slowly from the bed to avoid any sudden dip in blood pressure. Medications may need dose titration in such cases for optimised effect. Consult your physician and do follow the prescription. Hope the above information helps you. Thanks.
