My blood pressure was high 170/82 and I took a clonidine

This answer was rated:

My blood pressure was high 170/82 and I took a clonidine .1-- 4 1/2 hours after an Azor (5-40 mg) The pressure is down to 135/75. Am I okay if it drops more. What should I do?
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.

your blood pressure is at a good range now.

if it drops too low, and you become symptomatic like if you get dizzy or short of breath and your blood pressure is very very low like less than 90/50, you should go to the ER for evaluation and treatment.

but most likely your blood pressure will not drop that low.

The pressure is now 125/69 and it is 11:00 p.m. Do you think it will drop much lower since it started dropping at 10:00 p.m.

no, I don't think it will drop much lower.

don't let your anxiety get the better of you.

don't stay up all night taking your blood pressure either, you will not get any rest if you do that

do get some sleep tonight. your blood pressure will be fine while you sleep.

you can check your pressure again in the morning.
