Fear of low blood pressure

Q: When I have a blood pressure reading of 140 over 63, I’m afraid to take my Metoprolol, fearing that my low reading will go too low. What do you suggest?

A: At 140/63, your blood pressure should be treated. If you are having symptoms of too low blood pressure when taking your medication as prescribed, you need to tell your doctor. Common symptoms of low blood pressure are light headedness, dizziness, and feeling faint with standing.
