Hi, I accidentally took...

Hi, I accidentally took 100mg Toprol XL tonite instead of my regular 50mg Toprol XL- I've been on 50mg Toprol XL twice a day for years- Will it be ok and shud I just not take the 50md in the am , then resume normal dose next night? My pulse is 72- 68.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Allergic to codine, some antibiotics- I take 5 mg Iisinopril in am n Triamtere 1 daily , and usually the 50 mg of Toprol XL am n pm, 1 baby ASA most days.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My blood pressure runs 130/70 - 140/70 usually- I am overweight but otherwise in good health- no heart arrhythmia. I do have anxiety , see a counselor for it.

Will you answer my question?

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, 100 mg of Toprol XL is not overdose.

The mean half life of toprol XL is 3-7 hours, so the peak of the effects would be within 2 hours. In general, once past two hours, if no symptoms have occurred, you can consider yourself safe.

Symptoms would include tiredness, dizziness, uneven heartbeats, shortness of breath, So you should observe for these symptoms.

And eat small snacks and take Gatorade,hot coffee.

Gradually change your position from sitting to standing.

However, I can reassure you that there is in fact very little likelihood of any problems occurring.

If possible monitor your blood pressure.

And you can miss it's dose in morning and resume your normal dose next night.

You should maintain a good hydration.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
