You may have mild symptoms like dizziness, mild lowering of blood pressure than normal, nausea, increased urination, stomach bloating, palpitation etc. But usually this is tolerated well as you have been taking them for long. You may take your blood pressure every 4 hours.

You may take your tomorrow dose about 3-4 later than the normal time.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
