I was diagnosed with high blood pressure a month ago. At first, I took 10mg of Lisinopril. Then my doctor increased the dose to 20mg and told me to take two pills every morning. On 6/17, I refilled my prescription and continued to take two pills every morning. Today I realized the refill was for 20mg pills and I should only be taking one a day! So I've been taking 40mg, not 20mg, since the 17th. How bad is this? Thanks.
Did the directions on the bottle tell you to do that? Its ok, the max dose is 40 mg, a day. Your blood pressure was probably a little low.
