Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Are you able to measure your blood pressure at home? Are you having any symptoms?

No. No symptoms yet was just an hour ago.
Doctor: Dr. Ravoof, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Dear customer,
Thank you for replying.

The medications that you have taken will not cause any serious complications or adverse effects except a possible low blood pressure. These medications are aimed at lowering the blood pressure. So, the only possible complication is a low blood pressure (less than 90/60) but even this possibility is rare considering that you have not taken a toxic dose. If you develop any symptom such as weakness or lightheadedness then you should go to the emergency or urgent care. Even now without any symptoms, it will be helpful for you to go to the local pharmacy or Walmart and have your blood pressure checked with a free blood pressure machine.

So, I don't think that there will be any harmful effects and you can continue taking your normal medication from tomorrow. At present to avoid a low blood pressure you should drink plenty of water and eat salty food. The extra sodium in the salt can raise blood pressure and prevent low blood pressure from occurring.

Take care.

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.
