What causes dizziness and fainting while on blood pressure medication?

hello, I currently take high blood pressure medicine but have recently started working out. I too my pill last night but woke up to use the restroom and became dizzy, leading to, 2 fainting spells, falling to the ground, eyes rolled back in my head the second time my husband said. Could this be because my blood pressure was too low?

Check out your blood pressure during the episode to know whether you have hypotension or not. Other possibilities like anemia or arrhythmia or syncope or seizure episode or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Please consult your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
