Hello I'm Dr Chip

What does your blood pressure usually run?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Maybe 154/80 it goes higher at times, but this is with taking all my BP meds

Well, then I'd consider 117/54 too low for you

Part of it might be dehydration but I think you need to contact your doctor to see if you need to cut back on one of your blood pressure medications for the time being
