Your wife has very interesting symptoms. A rash is not a typical side effect of the med that she took. It is very important to keep blood pressure within a normal range. High blood pressure over a period of time does put excess strain on the heart and can eventually lead to heart attack or stroke. The medication that you mentioned is commonly uses for hypertension. However if she is having low BP readings then this is not proper medication. Sometimes hypertension can be controlled with diet and lifestyle. She is not overweight at 120 pounds. Since she is a vegetarian, what is her source of protein? Does she smoke? She should be under the care of a cardiologist at this time, and should have her heart rate monitored for 24 hous to see if she has an irregular heartbeat which is causing her to faint. She also should have her carotid artery evaluated for any blockage.
