Blood pressure: How low is too low?

When I went to the doctor yesterday my blood pressure was at 110/60. She said it's really good, but if it goes much lower we may have to adjust the medication. That would be awesome!  The more meds I can get off of, the better.

This has really shown me the importance of monitoring medications. If I just keep taking it without getting the blood pressure checked often enough, I could put myself in danger.

According to Web MD, if it gets to 90/60 that is hypotension. There are other dangers associated with it, as explained on their website.  I just need to set a day of the week to remember to get out my blood pressure monitor and keep an eye on it.
