Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The range of systolic blood pressure for most healthy adults falls between 90 and 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Normal diastolic blood pressure ranges between 60 and 80 mm Hg.

Your blood pressure readings of 87/60 and 78/57 are lower then normal.

You need to stop taking losartan further & please report this to your doctor.

You need following tests:

-Electrocardiogram(EKG)
-Stress EKG,
-Blood tests
-Holter monitoring,

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to monitor your blood pressure readings for next few days & then treatment (if required) will be done accordingly.

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
