Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Hydralazine: to avoid abrupt discontinuation of drug to prevent sudden increase in BP. Taper it off,if felt necessary.

hi doctor, my name is libby and I am asking about hydralazine 25 mg and carvedilol 25 mg. both have been prescribed for my mother who was recently discharged from the hospital after having a heart attack. they are given to her, by me at 9am and 9pm along w/ other meds. she ran out yesterday so I had none to give her today and called her PCP to call the Pharmacy. This did not happen so I am very concerned as she will soon be going to bed. Mom will be 86 in a couple of weeks and actually has her 1st appt w/ her PCP since being discharged from the hospital. by then she will have missed 3 doses and I am of course concerned as I love her dearly. How serious is it that she has missed these doses? thank you doc5tor, I will await your response. libby
