Thanks for writing us
Your rapid pulse may be the cause for light headness, for cause for rapid pulse get some blood test like Thyroid profile and also renal function test..

sometimes with medicines also you can feel some drowsiness, light headedness but it subsides within few weeks.
I think you will feel better after stabilisation of B.P

Good luck
