If your doctor had told you that you can take one more tablet then its ok as he is one who treats you .
Anyways it is ok to take another tab. ,but look for if you get dizziness or nausea,low heart rate or low blood pressure.

Usually it takes 3 weeks to have the effect of the drug ,so if even with 100mg your blood pressure donot lowers then your doctor may add other medicine.

so inform him on monday.
