Side effects: Unfortunately, many of the BP meds do have such a side effect. Also, if your body is used to having a high blood pressure, it can take your body a little time to get used to a lower reading. That can manifest as dizziness.
Usually with time, some of these side effects can dissipate.
If it doesn't , talk to your doctor. Lots of choices out there to treat it.
