Hello, thanks for asking your query.

Your doctor had prescribed Meto ER 50 mg, CTD ( chlorthalidone 6.25mg) for control of blood pressure. Side effects of Meto ER can be giddiness, lightheadedness, tiredness, stomach disturbance, at times difficulty in breathings. Please do get in touch with your doctor if you get any of this side effects. But the drug is very well tolerated so dont worry.
The cause for your headache is that your blood pressure is not controlled. To keep Blood pressure under control you can need to limit your intake of coffee.
Do regular exercise,
Include healthy eating habits with more of fruits & salad in diet, avoid salty & fried food items.
Reduce weight if you are overweight.
Try relaxation techniques. Have good night sleep.

Wish you good health.
