I am currently on the DASH diet it is mainly fruits and veggies. If you are taking clonidine get off of it and adjust to something else. I took it for one day and I experienced the same dizzy could not stand up could not function and I work full time. It is impossible for me to live like that I just quit it and went to the doctor who put me on Norvasc but I got hives from that tried Bystolic again but don't like how it makes me feel, Ziac brand name is the only meds that did not affect me but it is out production right now and won't be available for 8 weeks so I am stuck with whatever. I hate blood pressure medicine it sucks.
