Hypotension and Meds

Hi Everyone, 

I’m feeling a little down. Before my diagnosis of HF, I always had low blood pressure (typically in the 90’s/60’s). I know Beta blockers and ACE inhibitors are key to a good prognosis, but even the low doses my BP falls really low. Is there anyone else who had low BP before their diagnosis? If so, how long did it take you to adjust? How low did your BP get while adjusting? I’m feeling a bit hopeless .

    Good morning, thank you so much for sharing this, I know this time must be hard for you. What does your doctor say about your concerns? And, have you asked your pharmacist? They can also be an excellent source of information I have found. Best Katie
