Thanks for your question. I would say yes you should go to ER because your BP is falling persistently due to the effect of medication and you are also having symptoms of low BP. You need proper evaluation and re-review of treatment strategy for hypertension. Early evaluation is recommended in your case and visit to ER is advised for you in order to rule out any thing serious and complete examination.



Best of luck and keep in touch
