I was 232 pounds lost 40 I am on high blood pressure meds olmetec plus 20/12.5 feeling light headed am i being over medicated?

Possibly: Congratulations on the loss of weight. Excess weight is a contributor to elevated blood pressure. If you have lost this much, you might indeed be overmedicated. Hopefully you are being followed closely with your family doctor during this interval - and also have an exercise program going on. ...Read more

May be BP problem: You have symptoms that suggest a problem called autonomic insufficiency (dizzy spells, passing out, headaches). This is common in young women. Essentially the brain can misread the signals being sent by the heart and blood vessels and cause the pulse to go fast (or slow) and the blood pressure to fall making you lightheaded.
