Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Nothing to worry here.

As you have taken a single extra dosage-this should not cause any side effects. A single extra pill will not lower your BP.

Instead of 2 tablets in a day- you accidentally took 3 tablets today (7 am, and then 6 pm, and then 10:30 pm)

Maximum dosage is -Lisinopril 80 mg per day and Hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg

Your Blood pressure of 160/100 is still high.

Watch for the following symptoms: fainting,dizziness or extreme weakness.

Just skip your next day pill & after that you can take your regular dosage.

So bot***** *****ne is that usually & most likely this single extra dosage of lisinopril will not cause any side effects.

Nothing to worry here.

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.
