My BP, recently, and very suddenly dropped to 70/49! Help my BP needs help as well as my nerves. What would cause this drastic drop?

A: Anyone taking blood pressure medicines needs to be aware that blood pressure may drop if you stand up to quickly. You did not mention what you were doing when your blood pressure dropped or how long it stayed low. Make an appointment to discuss this with your doctor.
