Can blood pressure medication make you dizzy and nauseous?

i am 51. just started on bp pills in March. coversyl 5mg and 1.25mg concor when needed. I felt nauseted and dizzy on and off constantly. bp readings are great in the afternoons 110-130/70-80. but fluctuates in the mornings and evenings. 130-150/80-90. Is it normal to have dizzness and nauseated ( and felt heavy heart) when one take any bp pills? Just switched to coversyl plus ( 5mg+1.25mg) two days ago. dizziness and nausea persist while add on fast heart beat. should i continue with coversyl plus or stop?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to blood pressure medication.
The symptoms will go away on its own once the blood pressure gets normal.
So,I suggest you to continue the medications.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
