Does blood pressure medicine cause restlessness?

My husband is taking 2 drugs to control high blood pressure. He does not sleep well and I m wondering if either of these drugs could cause restless sleeping. He is taking amlodipine besylate 5 mg and Losartan/HCTZ 100/12.5 mg tablets and a baby aspirin each day. He had a slight stroke in 2009 at the age of 51. His blood pressure yesterday was 132/80.

Please note that Amlodipine may be causing insomnia.

But it is seen in rare cases. None of my patients has reported it so far. So please consult a local doctor as there may be some other cause.

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