Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting today.

Low blood pressure that either doesn't cause signs or symptoms or causes only mild symptoms rarely requires treatment. If raising blood pressure is recommended, depending on the cause of your symptoms, your doctor may tell you to increase your blood pressure by making some simple changes:

Eat a diet higher in salt.

Drink more water. Fluids increase blood volume and help prevent dehydration, both of which are important in treating hypotension.

Limit alcoholic beverages.

Several medications can be used to treat low blood pressure that occurs, for example, when you stand up (orthostatic hypotension).
