Maybe: What does "i am taking it often" mean? If you are taking it more often than prescribed then yes your symptoms could be a side effect. Do not take it if it is not yours and if it is do not take more then the recommended dosage. You are asking for trouble. You could also be low on fluids and experiencing a drop in blood pressure when you stand up too fast.
