General & Family Physician 's  Response
This seems to be a viral bronchitis/URI with orthostatic hypotension(fall in blood pressure on standing ).The fall in blood pressure may be secondary to a side effect of the antihypertensive drugs or the viraemia.if it persists,you will need a detailed physical with special reference to the cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system.Avoiding sudden getting up and exertion will help,adequate intake of fluids and electrolytes is essential.Ruling out ischaemic heart disease as also a echocardiography may help rule out any CVS problem .
