I have taken the first three high blood pressure pills for three to four years and ever since I have started taking them all I want to do is sleep. I'm tired all the time. When I do go to bed and sleep all I do is have short dreams; like a short story. I was diagnosed with a tumor in my adrenal gland on top of the right kidney and they say it's nothing to worry about they "think" it is a fatty tumor. What I have read first sign of an adrenal tumor is excessive high blood pressure. My question is: Will the above list of medication make me sleepy and tired all the time? Five years ago I was 165, walked 3 miles a day and now I'm 230 and don't have engery for anything. Brenda J. Hice

Both lisinopril and labetalol may cause fatigue, especially the latter can make you feel tired. One of the potential side effects of hydrochlorothiazide is weakness.
Weight gain and blood high blood pressure are just some of the symptoms of Cushing syndrome, which is due to elevated corticosteroid level your adrenals make. A good test to do would be a 24 hour urine collection for free cortisol to see if your adrenal glands produce too much cortisol. Sometimes the cause of Cushing syndrome has to be further evaluated to see if there is abnormal secretion of hormones from your pituitary gland in the brain.
