Thank for asking to HCM
This may not be a side effects of medicine you are taking, or may be some time, but near cause and most likely reason of extortion should find out first, and that is cardiac problem, low hemoglobin, respiratory syndrome, if all these came negative then we can say that this must be because of the drugs, ( Age/sex missing here, it matters here) bye
