DR HASAN :

So i need to know in terms of hours that how many hours back you took your last dosage?

JACUSTOMER-rfxl2vns- :

im n arizona i tk it yesterday at 10:00 p.m.

DR HASAN :

Thanks a lot for your input.

DR HASAN :

You should not take your dosage now.

DR HASAN :

Although your blood pressure and pulse is still in lower normal range but repeating dosage can take it down further.

JACUSTOMER-rfxl2vns- :

i did at 9;00

DR HASAN :

Ok then it's fine.

DR HASAN :

Before you take your next dosage tomorrow, you should keep the record of your blood pressure and pulse.

JACUSTOMER-rfxl2vns- :

ok im really scared im tired and very sleepy

DR HASAN :

Blood pressure should not go below 90 and pulse should not go below 60.

JACUSTOMER-rfxl2vns- :

should i tk the meds like around 4:00 p.m. not so close to bed time

DR HASAN :

There is no need to worry because you still are in normal range.

JACUSTOMER-rfxl2vns- :

ok

DR HASAN :

There is no harm in taking dosage at anytime, you can take as per convenience.

DR HASAN :

Your levels are normal right now.

DR HASAN :

What you should do is just drink lots of fluid before you sleep.

JACUSTOMER-rfxl2vns- :

ok im trying to lose weight i have a beautiful baby girl i dont want her to b w/out a daddy

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.

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.
