Hi there ...

Yes you can trust machine and nothing will happen if she took extra dose of BP Lowering medicine , it would be ideal for her that if her BP reading are still high she should take her regular dose , and nothing to worry .

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.
