Our expert says:
It is possible that your reaction to standard carbonated cold drinks is triggered by a blood sugar reaction. Rather stick to drinking only sugar-free beverages. If you also find that you are developing such dizzy spells towards late afternoon when your blood sugar is low, then it may be a good idea to discuss this problem with your doctor and have a glucose tolerance test done. I am not sure what you mean by 'stimulant' medication? are you referring to antidepressants? if so, this should not affect your reaction to antidepressants unless you also feel dizzy as a side-effect of the medication and you drink sugar sweetened beverages. The combined effect may make you faint or have an accident.
