    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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.
