Taking extra doxazosin for blood pressure of 190/99

User Profile
Normally I take one each of Propranolol 160 LA, Bisoprolol/hctz 10/6.25, Doxazosin 4mg tab. With such high blood pressure for at least 24 hours, can I take one extra doxazosin 4mg tab or a half of a tab anyway?

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

I would advise against doing so. You did not mention the exact blood pressure reading. Even if the BP readings are high, you should only take the medication after consulting your doctor.

Wishing you best of health
