dear patient

thanks for your concerns. Probably you are covered for today in terms of total dose so you can skip the pm dose tonight and resume tomorrow in the morning; monitor your pulse, which should be between 50-80 and your systolic blood pressure, which should be between 110 and 140

truly yours
