Change in medications Toprol XL to Lopressor + Microzide

My physician recently changed my BP meds from one 50mg Toprol XL at bedtime to one 50mg Lopressor twice a day and added Hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide) one every morning. Now I'm tired all the time and just want to sleep. Will this extreme tiredness eventually go away when I get used to the new change, or is this something I need to talk to my doctor about.

I take the Lopressor too and I get drowsy from time to time.  I found that if I sleep more at night or am able to take even just a 20 minute nap I do better. Getting used to it is up to you.  I think some react differently from others.  I take 50mg 3 times a day.  Why did your doctor change your meds?  You didin't say.
