Thanks for writing in.

It is recommended that you take the current dose only.
Missing one dose would not cause any serious rise in blood pressure. So, be reassured..

Just take the current dosage. There is no need to take a double dose.
Do continue with the regular dosage from tomorrow.

Hope this answers your query.

Do let me know if you have any further concerns.
