First of all, you should measure your blood pressure and if it was high,you would take anti-hypertensive drug and do an ECHO on your heart to assess the ejection fraction of the heart.
Second, if you take oral contraceptive pills,you should know that some pills can cause vertigo such as progesterone and salt and water retention such as estrogen. So, you can ask your doctor for another method for birth control. When you stop oral contraceptive pills you can take Vertin 16 mg twice per day. Semetil 5 mg is not suitable for your case.
Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
