Hi,

Yes, many diabetes medications and blood pressure medications have side effects that can contribute to drowsiness, although that symptom is very non-specific. I would make sure that her blood sugar is not too low by testing it at home when the drowsiness occurs. If her blood sugar is between 70 and 90 at the time tested, she should be given a small amount of orange or apple juice to bring it up. You also may want to get a home blood pressure device. If your mother's blood pressure I dropping too low on the medication, she may experience dizziness/drowsiness and may need to take less. I would inform the prescribing doctor of your mother's symptoms, so that they can adjust things further.
