Brief Answer: You can again start taking as per your previous Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Both medications you are taking are for controlling blood pressure. So from tomorrow you can again start taking as per your previous schedule it will not have any adverse effect. Lifestyle changes and diet modification help in maintaining blood pressure in normal range. Making lifestyle changes is an important first step in the treatment of high blood pressure. In some patients, lowering sodium and alcohol intake, keeping weight in the ideal range, engaging in regular aerobic exercise, and stopping smoking may be sufficient to control high blood pressure. Such lifestyle changes can lower blood pressure as effectively as therapy with one blood pressure-lowering drug. Alternative therapy like meditation, yoga, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX also helps in maintaining blood pressure. Hope this answers your query.
