I accidently took my blood pressure mess twice. Took it

Customer Question

I accidently took my blood pressure mess twice. Took it earlier this evening, my boyfriend Tom me to get them at the pharmacy and I took on the way home, he said I should wait but I went ahead and took one. I just woke up after falling asleep in bed and for some reason thought I hadn't taken it so I took another. It's 10mg amlodipine besylate.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

How is your blood pressure, pulse now?

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 8 months ago.

Hello Cynthia,

I'm Dr Chaithanya, experienced Physician attending you.

Don't worry; blood pressure medications work in such a way that it decreases high blood pressure to normal, but they are not very efficient in making normal blood pressure to low unless you take a very high dose. So, don't worry, just take next dose as 1/2 of your regular dose and after that take it normally.

Drink more water and fluids, so that the medicine flushes out fast.
