Question: dear Dr

I ask again as I haven't received an answer and I am worried. I take exforge 5/160 daily at around 5:30pm. I am travelling and not sure I took it today or not so I took one at 2am. Now I am not sure whether this was an overdose. Should I be worried?

Brief Answer:
Do not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for query.

I think you should not worry about a probability of extra dose of EXTRA FORGE. it contains amlodipine and valsartan which have a long term action and do not drop pressures suddenly. You can monitor blood pressure once you are back home.
You may miss this time but always make it a practice to off your pill reminders only after taking the medication. This helps to avoid such panicky situation.
If you have dizziness, vomiting or fall please see a doctor.
