    Valium is not prescribed for blood pressure and does not work directly on blood pressure. Valium at normal doses causes a person to relax, which lowers the pulse rate in people that have anxiety or who are under stress. A lower pulse rate causes blood pressure to decrease. In people without anxiety or stress, Valium has little effect on blood pressure unless taken at a higher dosage. The problem with taking higher doses is that the effects are unpredictable and they can vary from one time to another. So, it might help a little, but just walking for 20 minutes a day and cutting out salt from the diet can do more than Valium.

    OK to answer your question first, yes you can take Valium with your BP. And your BP isn't low! Hypotension isn't defined until BP is <90/60 and generally, most people's BP needs to be a lot lower than this for them to be symptomatic. Low BP is only ever a problem if BP is so low that it's unable to full the requirements of the body. If this were the case you'd be symptomatic with dizziness. So your BP isn't low, it's a normal healthy variant. Next issue. Valium is very poor management for anxiety and is seldom prescribed in this instance.- Current guidelines do not support the use of Benzo's in anxiety management. Valium is highly addictive, you only have to take Valium for 3 consecutive days in a row and omit on the fourth day to experience some degree of withdrawal. Your body will also develop tolerance to this drug pretty quickly- after which time it is completely worthless! Valium can also make any anxiety worse the next day. Best advice is CBT (cognitive Behavioural Therapy) which has a 70% success rate in curing anxieties and perhaps an SSRI in the meantime which is far less addictive
