Hello again,

I am writing the answer without getting any further information from you.

Three drugs can be given to treat hig blood pressure , if it is not controlled by one or two drugs.

Three drugs can also be prescribed to reduce the dose of other two drugs when they can produce side effects from high doses.

You can get more information about it in this link.

You have to cick on the link to open it and you can read in details.

But when he is feeling dizziness with fall of blood pressure he should take a review of his condition by doctor.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
