Losartan is causing me great dizziness. Will olmesartan and amlodipine do the same? Maybe because of the Fibromyalgia I seem to have many of the negative side effects of my medications.

I am assuming that you are being treated for high blood pressure, and I am also assuming that (a) you intend to lose weight and (b) are limiting your salt intake. You don't state why you are unable to work.
I don't know if other drugs than Losartan will cause dizziness, but amlodipine is a different class of drug and might be worth trying. The drugs you use should be monitored by your physician, along with the blood pressure responses.
