Customer Question

I am suffering from motion sickness and my GP suggests that it could be due to the medication I am taking for the control of hypertension. The two main tablets that I am concerned
1] Ramipril
2] Amlodipine.
I have tried excluding them from the mix but the feeling of being on the sea in a boat comes back later in the day. I am on rather a lot of medication for this complaint. If you would like me to I will add every thing else on this list

amlodipine can, if it is lowering the bp too much especiallysame withe ramipril.Moxonidine more so with the dizziness, a more common side effect.Not simvastanin so much.

I am not suffering from dizziness or vertigo. I altered two pairs of trousers for myself last week so I can sit and do needlework.
This is a feeling of rocking especiall6y when I am sat down yet I am not moving. If I shut my eyes when standing or sitting I know I shall fall if I am not supported or holding on to something. Any ideas? I can`t tolerate this continually.
