Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

As per your description,your dizziness can be associated with low blood pressure due to double dose of your medicines.

So you need to maintain a good hydration with plenty of fluids and Gatorade.

Also take OTC Meclizine for dizziness.

You should eat small meals throughout the day.

If possible add some more salt only for today to normalise your blood pressure.

You should gradually change your position from sitting to standing.

And do deep breathing.

Press above your eyes with your thumbs.

And elevate and massage your feet.

If your symptoms'll not show any improvement then see your doctor or visit ER.

Monitor your blood pressure before taking your next dose.

If it's not high then miss the dose and continue a day after tomorrow.
