Mohamad, Fadzilah and Devaraj, Navin Kumar and Abdul Rashid, Aneesa and Abdul Manap, Abdul Hadi (2019) Drug-related postural hypotension: to withdraw or not to withdraw (a case series). International Journal of Human and Health Sciences, 3 (4). pp. 241-244. ISSN 2523-692X


Orthostatic hypotension is a common presentation in the primary care setting. Concise management is important as it can lead to falls, particularly in the elderly and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Its management presents as a challenge as there are differing guidelines on managing these patients. This case report illustrates two cases of drug-related orthostatic hypotension with similar presentation, however both were managed differently.
