My boyfriend recently accidentally took his medicine twice. He takes 5 mg amlodipine once a day he got up early this morning took his meds and then took more 3 hours later because he forgot. Will this hurt him?

Hi, Kim!

Any time that you are worried about the health and safety of a loved one due to taking too much medication, you should immediately call poison control, or seek assistance from your nearest emergency medical treatment facility.

How is he doing?

Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker that's used to help lower high blood pressure and treat certain cardiac conditions.

In reality, taking two tablets of the 5mg dosage wouldn't be an overdose, since it is also available in that dosage, it's just more than he should be taking.

What may happen though is that his blood pressure or heart rate may go lower than usual and you should watch him for any danger signs, such as severe sedation, extreme drowsiness, dizziness and shallow breathing.

I stopped taking ibuprofen 2 days ago. The headache I have is awful. What can I do to ease it and not cause any further problems. Is caffeine effective with such as this?
