Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer. Detailed Answer: Hi, If he took 2 Lotrel about 2 hours ago, then, it is better to continue inducing vomiting. Keep monitoring his blood pressure and heart rate. I'd like to also know the dose of 1 tablet Lotrel he took. If the dose is low, then, there are less chances for side effects. Looking forward to kindly have the requested data (when he took Lotrel and the dose)! Thank you! Dr.Benard
