Hypotension in a healthy person that doesn’t cause any problem usually doesn’t require treatment. But if you have symptoms and signs of low blood pressure, you may need treatment. The treatments for low blood pressure depends on what causes it. If it’s not clear what’s causing low blood pressure or no effective treatment exists, the goal is to raise your blood pressure and reduce signs and symptoms. Depending on your age, health status and the type of low blood pressure you have, you can do this in several ways:
1. Use more salt
Experts usually recommend limiting the amount of salt in your diet because sodium can raise blood pressure, sometimes dramatically. But for low blood pressure people, that can be good thing. Still, you need to get any advice from your doctor about this stuff.
2. Drink more water
Fluids increase blood volume and help prevent dehydration, both of which are important in treating hypotension.
Several medication, either used alone or together, can be used to treat low blood pressure. Doctor often use the drug midodrine (Orvaten, Proamatine) to raise standing blood pressure levels in people.
