Anyone Had Any Problems With Blood Pressure Going Low Because Of Their Parkinson Disease Medication?

Anyone Had Any Problems With Blood Pressure Going Low Because Of Their Parkinson Disease Medication?

Doctor lowered my blood pressure medication. I lost a lot of weight and it made my blood pressure get way low

My BP has been in the low/normal range...my pulse is slower too. I do get dizzy once in awhile so I'm being careful not to fall...

I have high blood pressure controlled by two different BP medications. I am in the process of trying to lose weight as my weight contributes negatively to this disability. And I am sure losing weight will also improve my BP. I take my blood pressure on a regular basis. I have noticed that my BP drops pretty low at times. Other times it is high, not real high, but slightly above normal. So I know PD affects it. So I would recommend to anyone that has PD that you monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis. Keep a journal of the BP and time of day, when meds were taken, last meal time (or snack), etc. There are some good digital BP cuffs you can get to check BP.

Yep I’ve lost forty pounds and my BP drops significantly when I stand up. Doc said it was the autonomous part of the brain telling heart to lower pressure. I’m going to a specialist about it.
