In brief: Postural Hypotension

This can happen to any of us, but some mediations may make it worse.
When you stand abruptly, your body is slow to respond, so gravity pulls the blood down towards your feet and away from your head. If this is new or something has changed like taking a new medication, might be worth talking to your doctor. What you are doing is the right response.
