This answer was rated:

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
HelloPlease list all of your medicationsI can not review them without knowing what they arethanks

The two I am most concerned about is 1] Ramipril 2] Amlodipine. This is a list of the rest of my medication.3]Indapamide 2.5 mgms
4] Moxonidine0.4mgms a.m
This is all the medication for the control of hypertension
5] Moxo0nidine 0.2mgms nocte
6] Simvastatin 20mgs nocteThere are other medications but they are not for the control of hypertension
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.
