Are you able to check your BP where you at?

Expert:  Nadim Al-Mubarak replied 1 year ago.
  • Accidental ingestion of extra BP pill, most of the time is well tolerated with no problems. You can increase your tolerance to this incident by drinking enough fluids and injection of salty food items
  • However, your lightheadedness could be an indication that your Blood Pressure is too low as a result of the extra BP medicine, and therefore, if you BP at home is low, then you need to get to the emergency room immediately, using 911
