I just realized I took a second dosage of my morning

Customer Question
Hi. I just realized...

Hi. I just realized I took a second dosage of my morning medications, about 2 hours apart. Lisinopril/HTZ (20mg/12.5mg) and Atorvastatin(10mg). Do I need to worry that my BP will get too low?

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Have you been feeling dizzy or lightheaded?

It's been a while. Couple months for a specific issue, but over a year for a physical. And, no, not dizzy, or lightheaded. But it's only been about 10 minutes since I took that second dose.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I don't think so.

Good

I think you'll be fine

For now I suggest you rest and check your pressure every half hour for the next two hours

Unless it drops to somewhere around 100/60 by that time all's well

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
