Extreme Dizziness, taking medication for stress and depression. Cause for dizziness?

I experience extreme dizziness at the same time every day, it feels like my head is spinning, similar to drunken dizziness but I do not drink at all. It gets so bad that I have to lie down, sometimes for hours and it makes me feel very sick. I take zopiclone and olanzapine for post traumatic stress disorder as well as fluoxetine for depression which I have been taking for years but the dizziness is new.

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Dizziness can be a psychological symptom, but then you have to rule out the physical reasons for this dizziness. You need to see an ENT specialist who can examine you for vertigo. You may be advised a few tests that will confirm the reasons about the vertigo.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further clarifications.
