Default Weight Loss & Blood Pressure

I have only lost 12.5 lbs but I am already having super low bp's., like 100/69 with skipping a day of meds! I set an appt w/my Dr. on Friday but I am wondering, has anyone gotten off of bp meds from losing weight? When I lost my first 25 lbs 2 years ago I was able to get off of one of my meds, but never thought I'd get off both!

I think it is possible -- you see it all the time on The Biggest Loser...and if your bp is low while on the meds, your MD may want to adjust the dose.

Good luck!!!
