Jen- I did exactly what you said...just waited until I got home, and took it at my regular time at night. I didn't bother checking my bp because I knew it wouldn't look great. I didn't feel any different that day either. Thanks so much!

I know I'm a day late here but, from my own experience I would say try not to think about it and just take it when you get home. I forgot to take my meds one day last year and like Trish said I worried myself so much that my BP went up. When I saw the higher reading on my BP monitor I panicked and was going to leave work to get my meds and caused myself to have a panic attack and had to go the hospital for the panic attack. My BP was fine the whole time I was there. I talked to my doctor after that and he told me that missing one dose wasn't going to cause any problems. Ironically I work in a pharmacy where we dispense that med, later the manager told me that I should have told him and they could have gotten it for me that one time. I now always carry a pill bottle with one dose of everything I normally take just in case :)

Based on my personal experience....maybe. I missed my 200 mg dose one night and didn't notice anything, but then again I was sleeping for most of that time. I still had a normal BP reading the next morning too. However, a couple weeks later I doubled up on my morning dose (normally 100mg, but I took 200mg) and almost passed out several times. I knew what I did immediately after taking the 2nd pill, but didn't think it would matter since I take that much at night.

Can you get home & take it at lunch? Just me but I would worry about my BP being high enough to send it even higher! I don't know about any other side effects. I hate when I get busy & forget a dose (usually when I'm out of my normal routine)!! I just try & take it when I remember - as close to usual time as possible.

I'm not pregnant, but I am on Labetalol 300mg, 2x a day. I forgot to take it this morning...running like a mad woman to get to work...

Any side effects I should be worried about? Is it too low of a doseage to worry?

Thanks!
