  • Depends on the medications. The dosage may need to be altered.

  • Yes, it depends on the medication. I switched to Aldomet for blood pressure when I got pregnant. It made me so incredibly tired but it's the only one safe to take. After about a month taking it, I wasn't so tired anymore. What is the medication you are taking that's making you tired?
