Would skipping Lopressor dosage for two days cause adverse effects?

Posted on Mon, 25 Sep 2017 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: I forgot to pick up my prescription of Lopressor and won't be able to get it until Tuesday because of the holiday. I take it twice a day and ran out tonight. Will 2 days without the medication be a risk for me?
