Hi Hux,

My diastolic is always in the 50's. This am it is 130/52. I'm on a heavy dose of Lebetalol (apha/beta blocker) & HCTZ. I've been on several meds. It seems they all decrease the diastolic more than the systolic with the exception of Clonidine & Norvasc which have too many side effects. Hctz decreased my systolic some.

I don't get dizzy etc. unless my b/p decreases suddenly.
I think your lightheadness needs to be investigated. Fam
