hypotension is just a symptom..which denotes that there is reduced blood volume in the it is better u meet a doctor to evaluate the cause of hypotension...but it can be treated by increasing water and salt intake*, increasing intake of caffeinated beverages because caffeine constricts blood so take more coffee
