    Hello, I appreciate your concern. Would like to know what your BP was before starting the drugs and how long you have been on this dosage regimen. Was it newly changed? The safer thing to do is to maintain the dose prescribed by your doctor so far the BP doesn't drop below that level. However if you feel dizzy or weak you need to get a urgent review. You should get your own BP monitor.
