Have you taken double dose at the same time or with a gap of few hours?

Any symptoms so far?

Thanks.

I am almost 56 yr old female. Taken within minutes of each other. I can probably get BP and pulse checked at work (I am there already ) so far feel ok. Tried to make myself vomit right after realizing but not successful.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, double dose of such medicines is not considered overdose.

Still you can experience low blood pressure,dizziness,difficulty in concentration.

So I would advise you to monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate at regular intervals.

And start gatorade and eat small snacks every 2 hourly.

You should take rest.

Avoid driving.

And if your blood pressure'll be lower than 90/60 mm Hg then add some salt intake and drink hot coffee.

You should do deep breathing.

And miss your next dose as scheduled.

In case you feel shortness of breath,excessive sweating,low pulse rate,dizziness then see your doctor for a clinical exam ASAP.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
Your satisfaction is our goal.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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!!
