I’m having dizzy spells that are really intense and I’m having trouble comprehending things. I’m also still being followed. I hope she has insight and can help me

Once I accidently took double dose blood pressure meds and I got too dizzy for many hours, almost fell and I was holding walls. I stayed in bed.

You can also ask a gp Dr about dizziness it could be many things.

I already did. She suggested exercises and steroids. So far, I have done the exercises but they didn’t help

I saw my pdoc today. We decided to lower my clozapine as I sleep too much (13-14 hours).

It could be that your diet is too strict.
You might have to increase your food intake.

I know that when I get dizzy spells it’s because I’m not eating enough.

My nutritionist told me that I should be eating more.

I suppose that’s possible. But I wasn’t having them when I weighed a lot more. The calorie needs were a lot higher back then due to my weight being so high. Yet I was only eating 1200 calories per day and I had no dizzy spells

It could also be because of hypoglycemia, low blood glucose levels.

I’ve thought that it could be low blood sugar because I’m on Metformin

Metformin by itself usually doesn’t cause hypoglycemia unless you are skipping meals, then it can cause low blood sugar levels.
