Under 90/60 is low blood pressure is low BP (hypotention).

Low blood pressure is not dangerous unless you are having symptoms.

But you also have a low pulse pressure (difference between the systolic & diastolic) and that difference is what "drives" the blood through the organs.

I am not a medical professional, but personally I would not take the extra dose if those where my readings.

Many hospitals and insurance companies have 24 hr Call-A- Nurse hotlines. You might want to call one of those to verify this.
