hello,
Welcome To Health Care Magic,
Low blood pressure in an healthy subject with no symptoms does not require medications.but person with a major drop even without any symptoms should be evaluated by a doctor.
The doctor needs to find out the cause and the medicine will depend upon the cause.No medicine without the prescription of a doctor should be taken it canb only worsen the case.
Electrolytes can be given till the doctor is managed.
So, i would say the best thing to do if your blood pressure dropd too low is to visit ypour doctor at the earliest.
Take care

My dad is 87 years old. He takes flomax for bph and travatan drops for glaucoma. He has mild high blood pressure but won t take his bp meds because it makes him feel to bad. He recently began having high blood sugar so I began looking at his medications. I now know that flomax has been causing many of his symptoms of dizziness and fatigue. I also read that flomax can raise blood sugar. He has taken flomax for many years. My question is what alternative medicine can he take for bph with less side effects. Or would surgery at his age help if all he has is an enlarged prostate. My concern is the years of taking flomax would result in no urinary control after surgery.
