This should not be a problem.

That dose is still within the normal range for both drugs in the pill.

Take your blood pressure a few times.

Tell your doctor what happened.

If you develop low blood pressure or symptoms [not likely at all] go to urgent care.

But, you can probably just stay on your normal schedule.
