Thanks for the query
I understand how anxious you might be due to the dizziness. I will certainly help you with that.
The dizziness you are facing is because of bisoprolol, it is one of the contents of tablet concor am. It is a beta blocker which acts by bringing down the heart rate , this is not tolerate by some individuals more so if you are into yoga and other forms of bending exercises.
Here is what you should do
1. I recommend that you meet your doctor and shift over to plain amlodipine instead of a combination
2. Alternatively you can be on a ace/ arb group of drugs for long term kidney and cardiovascular protection.
3. I strongly recommend not altering the prescribed tablets on your own
I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
