This is Dr. David

feeling them in your mouth is not a reliable way to know how many you took

seeing them in your hand before you swallow them is more reliable.

I bet you probably just took 2

you can try to count your pills and see how many are left in the bottle and see when you got your prescription filled to see how many you should have left in your bottle.

most likely even if you did take two of one of them, this would be fine and should not adversely affect your blood pressure.

candesartan max dose is up to 32mg a day

max dose of bisoprolol is 20mg a day

you should get a pill box so you can lay our your pills for the week

this will help you know for sure that you didn't overtake your medication.

let me know if you have other questions.
