Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,taking a total dose of 50 mg (25 mg twice in a day with a gap of 12 hours) would not cause much of concern.
I would not expect any serious side effects with this dose
Just keep yourself well hydrated.

And monitor your blood pressure before taking your next dose.

If it's lower than 130/80 mm Hg then miss next dose and continue as per directed afterwards.

You should eat small meals throughout the day.

And gradually change your position from sitting to standing position.

Watch for any unusual symptoms like nausea, weakness, dizziness, dry mouth, thirst, and muscle pain or weakness.
Many of these symptoms can be provoked by anxiety/fear. So do not panic as chances of anything serious are less likely.

You'll be fine.
