Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You have taken it wrongly. These medicines don't cause hypoglycemia. However these medicines increases the risk of developing diabetes in persons predisposed to diabetes.
The symptoms you are describing can be because of fall in BP due to medicines.
Even these symptoms can be due to cardiac issues also.
I would advise you to get ECG done.
I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
