What causes giddiness and ear pain while on Losar for BP?

The doctor prescribed Losar 50 mg 1-0-1 in place of Amlopress 10 mg 1-0-0. But I get higher BP in the morning upto noon and lower BP in the afternoons. The BPs are in the range of 180/100 to 150/80.I get giddiness/lightheadedness, ear pain, eye pain when I started using this medicine.What is wrong with the medicine? I consulted a cardiologist. He has now prescribed Pinom H and Cinod tablets. What is your advice/recommendation?

hi, i am 39 and i have history of 15 years of high triglycerides. recently i got my lipid done and my TG levels are 1200 and HDL 20. i started gempid twice a day with 45 minutes walk and lower calories diet. i have sharp pain in my eyes since i started gempid. After all these therapies i reduced my tg levels to 200 in 20 days but LDL is still 158.
