Brief Answer:
Here is what can happen .

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for ariting back quick, buspirone isn't a problem some people even take 60mg dose a day , so taking a bit more than usual wont effect you much.

But lisinopril may make your BP fall if basline BP isn't much high. And it's a long acting drug so you can't expect it's effects going away sooner if it lowers your BP, Keep checking your BP every half hour, if it reaches 100 systolic , do drink some electrolyte replacement like getorade, if it keeps falling and goes below 100 do visit an emergency department for ckose observation.

Bp above 90 is safe and lisinporil can only do this thing that it can make your BP fall..other problem you can face is postural drop, that you might fleed dizzy or blacked out if you stand from lying or sitting position, so lie down on bed, ask somebody around you to be there if you need to visit and emergency they can drive you there. If your BP doesnt fall below 100 then stay at home and wait for effects to go... taking salted water and a cup of coffeee can help compensate lowered BP.

Best regards.
