Contact your doctor right away if you take an extra dose of beta blocker. When you take two doses of a beta blocker, your blood pressure and heart rate may drop too low.
Your doctor may ask you to come into the office or to check your blood pressure at home. They will have you watch for symptoms of low blood pressure. These may include dizziness, difficulty breathing, a slow heartbeat, or nausea. Most people who take an extra dose of beta blocker will be fine. But it’s important to let your doctor know. Your doctor may advise you to go to the emergency room.
It is best to take your medicine at the same time every day. Use a pillbox or some other system to help keep track of your pills. This will help you remember to take your medicine. It may keep you from accidentally taking an extra dose.
You’ll be fine, your doctor is your lifeline!
