thanks for this question. What dose?

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

Don't worry, calcium channel blockers doesn't decrease the blood pressure to below normal if taken as double dose, no considerable side effects.

Just drink more water so that it flushes out little faster, take fresh air, walk for some time, and you will be alright

Hope this helps

If your dose is 180 mg and you took 2 then you should be okay.

If you take 240 mg and took 2 then you should still probably be okay but I would be worried

If you take 360 mg and you took 2 then I am worried and you need to go to ER

I would monitor your blood pressure and pulse closely

If your pressure is less than 100/60 or heart rate less than 60 you need to go to ER

can you tell me what dose you were taking?
