My husband is so tired all the time, he says he just doesn't

Resolved Question:

My husband is so tired all the time, he says he just doesn't feel good at all. He had a stent put in several months ago. He is usually so active, but now doesn't feel good at all. Too tired to do anything.

A few things - his blood pressure is TOO low - and this could be causing him to have this lethargy and tiredness and he might not even need a blood pressure medication as he is already on just one blood pressure medication.
Also, as for the ambien - he might not need this and he might benefit from just taking melatonin as a sleeping aid instead, and melatonin is available over the counter, no prescription is required.
