Hi Jane. Thanks for using Health Care Magic

I wish to inform you that Concor (Bisoprolol) is a betablocker used for treatment of hypertension. The usual dose is 5 mgs or 10 mgs once a day.

You have taken 2 tablets of Concor 5 mgs (i.e 10 mgs in total) 16 hours ago.
Such a dose will not cause any side effects.
Headache which you are having can be related to the medications but it is selflimiting. If it persists, you can consider taking a paracetamol.

Concor overdosage usually leads to slow heart rate, falling blood pressure, breathing difficulty and so on. It will never occur with two tablets of Concor 5 mgs.

So be reassured.
And remember to take right dosage next time.
You can take your next tablet as scheduled

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks and Regards

Dr Kiran
