My Pressure Typically Falls After I Exercise And I Feel Lightheaded. Is There Anything I Can Do To Prevent This?

Dr. Elijah Saunders answers the question: 'Blood Pressure Falls After Exercise?'

— -- Question: My pressure typically falls after I exercise and I feel lightheaded. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Answer: If your blood pressure falls after exercise, usually I would assume that you're on some medication that could be playing a role. That's not a normal phenomenon. Regular exercise probably will contribute to a lower blood pressure in general, but for it to fall too low such as you get lightheaded after exercise, I would assume that there's either some drug or maybe some dietary habits that you're practicing. So I would discuss that with your doctor.
