... because of this reason but I know I need to because I have hbp but my phobia is passing out
I think it is unlikely you would experience a syncopal episode if your blood pressure is normally high. But I do understand your concern with a new med.
I think the best way to reassure yourself would be to ask your doctor: 1) What would be an abnormally low bp for you? 2) Should you monitor your blood pressure? 3) If it drops below your acceptable low, what should you do?
Then you can relax because you will know how to handle the unlikely chance that you start to feel like you are going to pass out.
