It does not really lower your blood pressure alot to withdraw blood but most do not choose to draw alot with a pressure this low. It depends on how much they will be drawing as to whether it can have an effect on your pressure but if it is medically necessary they will draw one vial and try to use that for testing and no more.

Reply to Cheryl K.'s Post: If they try to draw blood at that time and not doesn't get enough blood, should they try it a second time. Second time isn't enough blood. Are they suppose to try it again the third time like 5 mins later until succeful?

They will tend to do that if they are having trouble finding a viable vein. As long as they are not taking too much blood then they will try until they are able to get enough for testing as the reason behind the testing is valuable to your health and well being. In most cases after three tries they will call someone else to take over but I have seen many cases where they do have to try a couple of times to find a vein that does not collapse.
