I was bringing my fiance his blood pressure medicine (20 mg. of Lisinopril) but instead of taking it to him, I accidently took his pill. I had already taken my dosage for the day, which is 10 mg. I tried to throw up and did so a little bit. Do I need to worry?
So this isnt actually your medication but your boyfriends but you are both on it? The Initial dose for high bp is 10 mg orally once a day, in patients not receiving a diuretic.
Maintenance dose is 20 to 40 mg orally once a day but some patients appear to have a further response to 80 mg, but experience with this dose is limited.
As long as you arent feeling extremely dizzy or light-headed, or fainting, you should be ok.
