Question: I accidentally just took my morning meds. I take 10 mg of ramipril and 120 of veraprimil and took them this morning around 9. I was supposed to be taking 10 mg of desipramine and 150 mg of Lyrica. Is it safe to take the lyrica since it knocks me out with having taken the blood pressure meds only 12 hours after morning dose

Yes you can take Lyrica

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome.
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
Lyrica is pregabalin. Yes you can take it with Ramipril or Verapamil but preferably keep a gap of atleast 2 hour.
Thanks and take care

The big issue is having taken the ramipril and veraprimil tonight when I normally take them in the morning as i did this morning. I took it at 9 AM and again around 10:15 Pm.
I am only supposed to take them in the mornings. Will i be okay now that i accidentally took them within 13 hours of previous dose

Brief Answer:
Monitor your bp

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.
So you have taken 20mg of Ramipril today with Verapamil.
So BP may fall with this dose. So you need to monitor your bp at least 2 hrly.
You should also monitor your pulse rate as Verapamil can cause pulse rate to fall.
In case you feel dizzy or have low bp, take some juice or salted water. Keep somebody around.
I hope nothing serious will happen but you should be cautious.
And message me if you feel anything serious
Thanks
