Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

I took clonidine 0.2mg my BP at 9:00 is 103/62 so my question is should I take my topral now like I usually do?

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, I wouldn't recommend taking Toprol at the reading of blood pressure( 103/ 62 mm Hg).

It can lower your blood pressure further and you can experience symptoms of low blood pressure like dizziness, headache, confusion.

You should hydrate yourself with plenty o fluids.

And monitor your blood pressure after 2 hours.

If it's higher than 130/80 mm Hg then you can take Toprol.

Otherwise, miss the dose.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

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.
