On labetol 100mg and nacardia 20mg. Feeling fatigue and having frequent urination. Is this normal?

Hi, I was diagnosed with HT a year ago (170/120) and was taking a combination of Telmisartan and Amlodipin (brought it down to 110/70). I am a 24yr old woman, 5 7 and weigh 140 pounds. Recently I took a second opinion and my doctor changed my dosage, due to my young age, to Labetol 100mg on empty stomach and Nacardia 20mg before bedtime. However I experience extreme fatigue and increased urination since I have been on the new medication . Is this normal? My BP is 120/80 now

Dear shreya.anantharaman,
Labetalol is known to cause Fatigue as a sideeffect, Nacardia (as you have written) i assume you mean Nicardipine/Nifedipine.Nicardipine increases frequency of urination in some patients.
I would suggest you revert back to the old medications if the sideeffects of the new regimen is causing too much trouble as your BP is controlled well on both medications.
Take Care.
