Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The first dose of any anti hypertensives is known to cause a mild hypotension that is, a fall in blood pressure. If your child is not feeling dizzy then you can continue his treatment without worrying. If such episodes are repeated after 4-5 doses then consult your physician for reduction in its doses.
