I take 25mg of carvedilol twice a day.. I accidentally took my second dose 4 hours later from my first dose what can happen & what should I do?
Taking two that close together can cause your bp to drop. Monitor your bp and see if it has taken a rapid drop, it should began to recover in a few hours as carvedilol wears off as the day goes on. That is the reason you take it twice a day. But if you are feeling badly the word from all cardiologist is to go to the ER for an evaluation. Otherwise wait until the next day and return to your normal time line. To prevent that from happening count out your days medications from evening to day. That way you take you evening medications and in the morning all your days doses and there's no medications left until you count out the day with your night meds.
