How do I get my BP up?
Dear CyberDoc,

Another thing I'd like to ask:

I have low blood pressure, and would love to donate blood, but the Blood Services turn me away everytime because of it. How can I increase my BP in order to dante blood without any risks to me?

Dear Just_wondering
You can take Effortil PL to increase it to normal levels. Donating blood will not be harmful to you but you might keel over afterwards ( faint - not die) because it may drop even further!
