Thanks a lot for your input.
You should not take your dosage now.
Although your blood pressure and pulse is still in lower normal range but repeating dosage can take it down further.
i did at 9;00
Ok then it's fine.
Before you take your next dosage tomorrow, you should keep the record of your blood pressure and pulse.
ok im really scared im tired and very sleepy
Blood pressure should not go below 90 and pulse should not go below 60.
should i tk the meds like around 4:00 p.m. not so close to bed time
There is no need to worry because you still are in normal range.
There is no harm in taking dosage at anytime, you can take as per convenience.
Your levels are normal right now.
What you should do is just drink lots of fluid before you sleep.
ok im trying to lose weight i have a beautiful baby girl i dont want her to b w/out a daddy

Sometime a slight dose adjustment is required.
I am glad to hear this and i assure you that you are perfect.

You should continue the same and monitor your blood pressure daily.
Keep a record of it and take to your doctor after two to three weeks so that can decide about future dosage.
